The Muppet Show Comic Book #4
Written by Roger Langridge
Art by Amy Mebberson
Colors by Eric Cobain
Letters by Deron Bennett
BOOM! Studios
Price: $2.99
Release Date: April 7, 2010

I remembered reading collections of Muppets comic strips as a kid, and this Muppet Show Comic Book series is very much in the vein of those past comics.

The story begins with Statler and Waldorf, the hecklers from the balcony, playing a game of chess with pieces resembling the Muppets. They talk of introducing a new character into the equation. Actually, it’s more of a new/old character. This character was on the Muppet Babies series, but to my knowledge had never appeared as a grownup until now. I don’t want to give away the name of the character, but it was interesting. It was very fun to see this character as an adult Muppet, and it was also cool to see a bridge between the Muppet Babies cartoon and the comics. I had always thought of the cartoon and the Muppet Show as existing in the same universe, and this issue verified that.

Comic Review: The Incredibles #7

The Incredibles #7
Written by Mark Waid, Landry Walker
Art & Covers by Ramanda Kamarga
Colors by Andrew Dalhouse
Letters by Troy Peteri
BOOM! Studios
Price: $2.99
Release date: March 24, 2010

The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies ever made. Naturally being about super heroes, this is definitely the one movie that was ripe for a comic book interpretation. When I first read Mark Waid‘s original interpretation I was extremely upset that it was only four issues. Well BOOM! Kids has since decided to make an ongoing series of The Incredibles and I couldn’t be happier with Mark Waid and Landry Walker‘s writing on the series thus far.

As the story continues in The Incredibles #7 we get a conclusion to the story of Mesmerella and Dash being grounded and powerless. This story was particularly interesting because it takes Dash completely out of his element and has him trying to figure out how to be a hero even without his powers. It is a testament to the writing team’s character development and growth, and is a good sign for issues to come. This is especially important when you have young characters like Dash and Violet in a story.

Comic Review: Wall-E #4

Wall-E #4
Written by Bryce Carlson
Art by Morgan Luthi
Cover A & B: Morgan Luthi
BOOM! Studios
Price: $2.99
Release date: March 24, 2010

One would assume that if you are reading this review, you most likely enjoy Wall-E, Pixar, and/or BOOM Kids. If this is true than you will definitely enjoy this comic. If you haven’t seen Wall-E than this comic might throw you for a loop because it follows the style of the movie in that in most of the scenes with the WALL-E units, there’s hardly any dialogue and the little dialogue they show all has to be sounded out. As I will discuss in more detail later in the review, this book is amazing for the art alone, as with the movie.

For the first time since this comic started the story is beginning to become more clear and intense. I believe we are hitting an apex in the story and may be finding out a lot of answers to the questions raised in the movie itself. I have really enjoyed all the stories up to this point but this issue has brought it to a whole new level and I have to say it has been ramped up and we finally see some humans for the first time. We also get the pleasure of seeing another new kind of robot that is part of the cleaning project on Earth that seems like an overseer of the WALL-E units. I really think that writer Bryce Carlson has really thought out this story and is invested in the adventure of Wall-E and respecting the story.
