Searching for the reason Rolf wasn't in this comic.

 

The Muppet Show: The Comic Book #10

BOOM Kids! (September 2010)

WRITER/ARTIST: Roger Langridge
COLORS: Digikore Studios
LETTERER: Deron Bennett
ASSISTANT EDITOR: Jason Long
EDITOR: Christopher Burns
DESIGNER: Erika Terriquez

The special guest star at the theater is Howlin’ Jack Talbot, and the Electric Mayhem, especially Animal, is looking forward to it. Unfortunately, Talbot keeps disappearing midsong, with a dog on stage when he does. When Talbot’s secret is discovered, Animal is willing to risk his life to save him.

Skits include Talbot’s musical numbers, a chicken trying to play the wolf in Red Riding Hood, Muppet Labs creating a hair growth formula, and another “Link Hogthrob, Monster Smasher!”.

What they got right: It’s nice to finally get a “special guest-star” on the show, even if it isn’t a real life celebrity. This was probably my favorite “Monster Smasher” story.

What they got wrong: As I keep saying, musical numbers don’t work in a comic book unless you know the music to go with it. You can imagine that “Monster Mash” matches up with “Monster Munch”, but the songs are too different.

Recommendation: It’s still worth picking up, but probably not the issue to start on. Get some of the others first, if only this arc, and then you’ll enjoy this issue better.

 

I think the bullet was just scared of Animal. Most people are.
