“NO! Those are the plans for my custard pie cannon!”


Marvel/Disney Comics (November, 2012)

“The Four Seasons” part 3; “Fall”
WRITER/ARTIST: Roger Langridge
COLORS: Kawaii Creative Studio
LETTERS: Litomilano S.r.l.
COVER ARTISTS: Elisabetta Melaranci & Mirka Andolfo

Pops is being retired by the Stage Doorman’s Union, and the gang is trying to find a way to get him to stay. Pops trains his nephew to take over.

Skits include Rizzo badly acting a nightmare sketch, Pops having a memory that ends up helping his situation and later a dance number, a really bad poetry reading and Pigs In Space.

What they got right: Pretty much everything they usually get right. There’s only one music number, because those don’t work in comic form.

What they got wrong: I know the poem was SUPPOSED to be bad, but I couldn’t even get through it. The joke kind of fell flat.

Recommendation: Unless another publisher picks up the series (perhaps sending it back to Boom?), this is Langridge’s last Muppets comic. Trust me, that’s enough to get this. He gets The Muppet Show.

Wait, are they a couple or not? I’m confused.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)
