Schmader's meeping post reminded me that the final issue in Roger Langridge's current Muppet Show series, "The Treasure of Peg Leg Wilson," hit comic book stores on Wednesday. I cannot overstate how totally delightful Langridge's Muppet comics are. He writes and draws them, and they are note perfect. He's been doing miniseries so far, but according to a recent Newsarama interview, he'll be doing a regular monthly series from here on out, which is excellent news. Seriously: Go to a comic book store. Look for comics with Langridge's name on the cover. Purchase them. (And while you're there, pick up issue #2 of Beasts of Burden, Dark Horse's creepy series about ghost-busting pets. It's written by Evan Dorkin and illustrated by Jill Thompson, whose art is some of the prettiest I've seen in a while. The issue stands alone, as the premise is pretty simple: Dogs and cats fight evil. Spookily.)
I guess I should also mention that the Portland Comic Book show is this Sunday. Duly mentioned.
