The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson by Roger Landridge & Company

The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson by Roger Landridge & Company

Completion Date: January 21, 2011
Reason for Reading: Carry on with the Series.
Roger Langridge's celebrated run on THE MUPPET SHOW comic book begins a new, zany arc! Scooter discovers old documents which reveal that a cache of treasure is hidden somewhere within the theater...and when Rizzo the Rat overhears this, the news spreads like wildfire! Meanwhile, Animal's acting very strangely—he's now refined and well-mannered! All your favorites are back as THE MUPPET SHOW COMIC BOOK continues!
Fiction or non-fiction? Genre?
Fiction. Graphic Novel. No idea what you would call it as a genre...

What led you to pick up this book?
I read the first book in this series way back in 2009 and then promptly forgot to check for more.
I didn't review it...

Summarize the plot, but don’t give away the ending!
Scooter finds a map while cleaning up the storage room and it turns into treasure hunt mania. In the meantime, the show must go on!

What did you like most about the book?
I always loved this TV show and attempted to rewatch it last year. It would be great if it could come back, but if it can't this is really the next best thing. They have brought back acts that you used to see in the show. Every time it happens I can't help smiling. While things are being played out I can hear it all in my mind. I am enjoying this trip down memory lane!

What did you like least?
That it was only a comic?

Have you read any other books by this author? What did you think of those books?
I read the first book in 2009, but I enjoyed this book way more. I am not sure if it is a mood or this is just way better. I think before the year is out I am going to have to read the first one again to see if I like it any better.

What did you think of the main character?
Kermit. I am a bit of Kermit fangirl at times. He was always my favourite character when I was a child... I was so sad when Jim Henson died. I love the show, Muppet Treasure Island is a classic comedy, and I watch Muppet Christmas Carol every year.

What about the ending?
The ending was good. There never really is an ending because this is like the show. They show the backstage happenings, but there are also things happening on the stage. All the classics acts are there.

What did you think of the cover?
It's fun, but they can do so much better. I don't understand why they don't!
