The King Arthur Tale though very skewed does retain its very basic plotline. Kermit is Arthur, he's reluctant to take on the duties of Kingship but does do them with pride. His main enemy is Sam the Eagle who wants to live in a more Republic nation. The Quest for the Holy Grail is the ultimate challenge but when they arrive home he finds his nephew has joined sides with Sam. The humour in this book is most definitely aimed at adults rather than children. There's a joke about having a recount and ...more

I'm loving Boom Comics Muppet comic books right now. They started last year, and while I haven't been able to pick up each issue of the comics as they come out, I've been reading the trade paperback collections of each story. The trade paperbacks are 112 pages long, and usually collect four issues of the comic book. The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson and On the Road were both enjoyable collections of The Muppet Show Comic Book, and the first classic adaptation I read, Muppet Peter Pan was wonderful. ...more

These Muppet books are harder to judge; if the Muppets are just playing the parts in a story, can they be said to be out of character? I think, in this case, they can be, at least some of them. Maybe it's just because I'm a Sam the Eagle fan, but I didn't think he would have been the antagonist for this story and the artwork (especially in the first issue) had Kermit all wrong, making him seem like a snarky jerk. There's some fun stuff in here no doubt, but it doesn't quite work for me.

This may well be my favorite of the Muppet "parody" series/GNs. The art, particularly in the first to chapters/issues, is a lot more "cartoony" than the other parody series, but I kind of liked it once I got used to it (it changes into the more complex style anyway in the later chapters). I think the thing I liked the most about the book, though, was the running gags. There's the constant cameos from the "Mahna Mahna" character, the "Why is it called Camelot?" gag in one issue (LOVE that payoff! ...more

This series was on notice. I didn't love Muppet Peter Pan and went into reading this latest installment with a critical mindset. Is this series worth keeping up with or is the quality on the way down? Thankfully, the answer to the first question was a resounding yes. This was another humorous, Muppet-take on a famous piece of literature. I smiled quite a few times and even laughed to myself once or twice. I was surprised and a little let down they once again let so many cultural references in th ...more

I just picked this up today and read it. I am familiar with the legend of King Arthur but the Muppets definitely twist it.

Kermit is Arthur the page of Sir Sam the Eagle when he is sent to retrieve a new sword and pulls Excalibur out of the stone, becoming the King of the Britons.

Muppetic chaos insues in the second chapter where Kermit holds a Briton's Got Talent to find knights for his septegonical table and he ends up with Fozzie's jester character and Gonzo's Lancelot who shoots himself out o

Hilariously punny! In true Muppets form, it was full of puns - especially at the end when King Arthur and Mordred have their "pun-off". I do think one has to be a true fan of the Muppets to fully enjoy this - I could hear each characters' voice in my head reading the lines, even the more obscure Muppets. I also thoroughly enjoyed the one issue where the original "ma-na-ma-na" Muppets popped in with their refrain every time someone said any word remotely close to "ma-na-ma-na" (such as phenomenon ...more

There just wasn't as much there as the Peter Pan one. And this art style was heavy handed.
Reader
I love me my Muppets. Can't help but think that kids who are deeply DEEPLY into the show are going to be primarily interesting in this one, though. When young Arthur (Kermit) pulls the sword of Excalibur from the stone, he must face down fellow nobles, Morgan Le Fay (Miss Piggy), and even his own nephew Mordred (Robin) before claiming the kingdom of his own. If you are deeply into Muppet lore then you'll get all the in-jokes and characters. If you aren't, you may miss a lot of what's going on he ...more

This comic book was given to me as a gift by my good friend who owns a comic book store and is(somewhat sucessfully) trying to hook me on comics by preying on my love of Kermit. This one is a LOT of fun.
Christiane
The tale of King Arthur as only Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Animal, Gonzo and the rest of the gang could tell it. Good clean fun for all ages!
Betsy
One Sentence Reviews: Not too shabby and definitely invokes the old Muppet Show of yore, though it could stand a little pruning here and there.
Josh
I really enjoyed the awful puns in this muppet take on Arthurian legend. Not much more to say about it than that.
Ian
I you like reading puns that make your brain cry, read this. And any fan of the Muppets will enjoy this book.
