I was disappointed that there was no rendition of "Movin' Right Along." Overall an amusing read. The highlight was the cover art located at end.

At the end of The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson, the Muppet Theater is destroyed. Blame Rizzo, Gonzo, Animal, and the usual explosive mayhem that usually accompanies the Muppets. So in their next outing, the Muppets need to hit the road.

The Muppet Show Comic Book is going on its second year of publication, and still going strong. The Muppet Show Comic Book: On The Road is the third trade paperback that collects Roger Langridge's stories. It's a good one, even if I wasn't

From 'Boom Kids' the story is split into three parts with little separate cartoons throughout. My personal favourites are Beaker, the old men, Animal etc etc umm well thinking about it, the list goes on.
I love these comics because they bring back nostalgic memories of waiting in trepidation for the 'Muppet Show' to come on as a kid. I'm picking up even more of the humour now as an adult & nuances & interplay of characters are superb, especially in comic format, wonderful.
The book is ja

The first segment is Fozzie pitching a Pigs in Space Movie.

For the other three segments, the Muppet Show goes on the road due to the damage to the theater in the last comic. Fozzie goes off solo while the rest of the gang performs in a country field (which reminds me of the train station TV episode). A comedian called Clint Wacky joins the show but he isn't that funny. And finally, the gang arrives back at the theater minus Fozzie while Gonzo runs a very strange marathon.


I really enjoy the Muppe

For those of us who love the Muppets and that awesome Henson-esque humor, this book was great. There were times that I felt as though I were watching an episode of The Muppet Show and who wouldnt love that?! However, that may be a drawback as well considering the fact that this series is being marketed to a generation who doesnt know the show or how it works. Seeing the familiar skits, "Pigs in Space" and "Muppet Hospital" were good for me but may go over the heads of the intended audience. All ...more

Such Muppet. Much story. Very meh.

Several good jokes and the premise was fun and cute. But I think that there is a reason that comedy TV shows always have many writers. Its really hard to do good comedy with just one person because the point of view gets a little stale. I think that this has happened with this authors run on the comic book.

Still in the style of the show, great artwork, but somehow I didn't find this one quite as enjoyable as the first one. The storyline (Muppet theatre is under renovations, so they take the show on the road) felt a little overused and lame. Still, satisfying for Muppet fans who just want more!
Bryson Kopf
Solid installment of Muppet goodness; I think I liked the On the Road stuff a bit more, but always a joy to see more Pigs in Space. If you like Muppets, you should enjoy this!

Incredible artwork by Langridge, who also has the vocal patterns of the show down cold. Filled with really funny gags, but the story itself didn't do anything for me.
Angela
Not that good. Quite disappointing after the fairytale adaptations. It does have the odd giggle in it but not consistantly. And Gonzo is drawn weirdly.

A lot of the humor felt forced in this one. The illustration for Fozzie was a bit off, as well.
Andrew
Good for a chuckle. Plenty of old, bad jokes, just the way I like my Muppet Shows.
