One of the best things to come along this year is Roger Langridge's THE MUPPET SHOW comic book, published by Boom! Studios. There have been three issues so far. It's amazing how he captures the tone of the series. The art, also, is just right. New York Magazine has a preview here.
This is a wonderful time for kids' comics. There the old material being reprinted (THE COMPLETE PEANUTS, most all of John Stanley's comic book output (LITTLE LULU, MELVIN THE MONSTER, the NANCY comic book -- can DUNC AND LOO be far behind?), collections of newspaper comic strips (like LIO, for instance), MAD MAGAZINE reprints, and so on) and new comics for kids (like OWLY, FRANKLIN RICHARDS, ARCHIE, the Little Lit Library and TOON Books. etc.) -- not to mention manga and Web comics.
And if you're anywhere near Chelsea, Michigan, there's next weekend's Kids Read Comics! convention.
