NEWS UPDATE: August 20, 2010
BOOM! Studios confirmed yesterday that the latest series in the Muppet Classics line of comic books, Muppet Sherlock Holmes, will be released on September 15th. Muppet Sherlock Holmes is being written by Patrick Storck (Muppet Snow White, Muppet King Arthur) and illustrated by friend of the blog Amy Mebberson (Muppet Peter Pan, Family Reunion). With folks like that working on this book, it's bound to be epic! Don't believe me? Then check out Newsarama's preview pages and interview with Patrick Storck and see for yourself!
There are also rumors circulating that The Muppet Show Comic Book #9 and Muppet Snow White #4 will be released next Wednesday, August 25th. If these rumors are indeed true, look for our good friends at ToughPigs to have a five-page preview of both issues before Wednesday!
The Muppet Vault? Well, as it turns out, ToughPigs' own Ryan and Joe have turned The Muppet Vault into a monthly event. That's right, every month in NYC, there will be a new opportunity for Muppet fans to view Muppet rarities on screen! This month's event, The Muppet Vault: Fairy Tales, is being held on September 12 at 2:00pm, once again at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY and only costs $5.00. Be sure to check out ToughPigs' official post for more info and visit the official Muppet Vault Facebook page for even more fun!
