What’s more exciting than the Muppets? The Muppets in comic book form! Marvel have announced that they will be collecting the Roger Langridge Muppets comics of the last few years, including material from The Muppet Show, The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson, The Muppet Show Comic Book, and The Muppets.
The New Zealand born writer/artist currently lives in Britain, and got his start in “The Straitjacket Fits” in the pages of Judge Dredd Megazine. He originally began to write Muppet stories in “Disney Adventures”, before going on write licensed material for Boom! Studios and Disney.
“I’m extremely proud of the work I did on the Muppet Show comic books and thrilled to hear that they’ll be available soon in this long-lasting format,” said Langridge. “This is one of those rare cases where corporate imperatives neatly intersected with a cartoonist’s own interests and passions, and I’m pleasantly surprised to hear that Marvel thought my efforts were worth commemorating with such a prestigious edition.”
