Review of "The Muppet Show Comic Book," by Roger Langridge et. al.

 Review of

The Muppet Show Comic Book, by Roger Langridge et. al. ISBN 9781934506851

Five out of five stars

The charm of the show is captured in graphic novel form

 This graphic novel is in essence a Muppet Show rendition in comic form. The main characters are presented in sketches that are absurd yet maintain the quirkiness of those unforgettable personalities. The two old men hecklers in the balcony pop up on a regular basis to give their caustic comments on what they have just seen.

 The Muppets are in the wild, aboard a spacecraft, in a science lab, under insurance audit and dancing in a ballroom. The longest running story is where an insurance agent is trying to determine for the formal records what kind of creature Gonzo is. It is not an easy task, for how do you define the undefinable.

 Truly unique characters in the history of entertainment, the Muppets are some of the best characters ever created. Each one is a work of genius, and there are so many.
