It's Time to Play the Music

I believe it's now been officially announced, so I daresay I can mention it here at last: I will be writing and drawing a Muppet Show comic for Boom Studios (after an initial mini-series written by Mark Waid). Big and scary! But good! Scary because it will be the first time I write material for other artists to draw (being monthly, I can't do the whole book on my lonesome, so there will be other hands involved - although I'll be drawing as much of it as I can). The details are still shaking down at the moment... but still, good stuff.

And while I've got your attention, I ought to mention that The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels, written by Danny Fingeroth, with a 30-page miniature graphic novel in the middle (what we used to call a "comic" in the olden days) drawn by Yours Truly, will be out on either the first of August (what the publisher told me) or 15th of September (what it says on Amazon) - I really have no idea which is correct, I'm afraid. Amazon pre-ordering info here if you're in America, or here if you're in the UK like me. Or else go to a shop like your grandfather used to do, you young whippersnappers.


  1. Roger - this is really terrific news. Congratulations! I'm really looking forward to it.

  2. Roger- as a long-time mega Muppet fan and co-host of an all-ages comic book podcast, I have to say this is AWESOME news! I can't wait to see what's in store! If you are up for an interview, please let me know!

  3. By the way, the url is
    Sorry about that.

  4. "It's time to put on makeup!"
    This is tremendous news. I'm a big fan of the Muppets since I was a wee lad, and it's nice that I can share it with my daughter through the DVD releases and now this comic series! I can't wait to see how this turns out!

    I MUST DO PINUPS FOR THIS BOOK! My daughter would think I'm the coolest Dad in the world if she saw my artwork in an official Muppets comic (that, or Doctor Who)! I shan't let her down!

  5. Ah, that's brilliant news Roger...if you need any artists...

  6. Sill no new Who stuff then... :-(

  7. Sorry Mr Anonymous, but I don't have access to my old Who illos at the moment - I'm visiting family in France and all my art is back home on my hard drive in London. There used to be an online archive of all my review illustrations, but I can't seem to find it at the moment; if I track it down I'll mention it here.

  8. Brilliant news, Roger! Now, if only they can get this into convenience stores and newsstands, where "da kids" can get at it...
