In the latest issue of The Muppet Show Comic Book, Statler and Waldorf are still playing a game of cosmic chess involving the Muppets. They arranged for Skeeter to show up and get a job there, and now they’re introducing Miss Piggy’s nephews, Randy and Andy Pig. Statler and Waldorf’s main goal seems to be manipulating events in order to create chaos, and these two are the perfect candidates. Randy and Andy are not very bright, clumsy, and cause constant trouble for the other Muppets.

Will the Muppets be able to deal with Randy and Andy’s “help” for an entire week? Read it and find out.

Roger Langridge has written another excellent issue that really captures the spirit of the original Muppet Show. In addition to Randy and Andy’s hijinks, the reader gets the benefit of seeing Miss Piggy in all her karate-chopping glory. There is also another segment of “Pigs in Space,” along with a Dr. Bob segment and a Swedish Chef segment.

Every time I read an issue of this comic, it feels as though my childhood has come to life again. Amy Mebberson is also continuing to do solid work on this comic. Mebberson’s art successfully captures the zany, wacky energy that the Muppets are known for.

Give the Muppet Show comic a try. The creators are true to Jim Henson’s vision, meaning that the book is a wholesome, hilarious trip into the world of Kermit and his friends every month.
