The Muppet Show Comic Book is a title published by BOOM! Studios based on the television series The Muppet Show beginning in 2009. The series is written and drawn by Roger Langridge with additional fill-in talent.

About

Each issue takes the form of a printed Muppet Show episode, complete with backstage chaos, recurring and original sketches, and "musical numbers" (which, given the medium's silent nature, are depicted on the page as poems). While the focus of the comic book is on characters who starred on The Muppet Show, Langridge fills the pages with familiar bit players from the original series and brand new faces, whether they be Whatnots, pigs, or monsters. In Langridge's continuity, the Muppets have been performing together for over 30 years, so characters who debuted after the show went off the air in 1981, such as Pepe the King Prawn, have been included, albeit silently. Similarly, Langridge's sketches include the familiar ("Veterinarian's Hospital," "Muppet Labs"), the forgotten ("Talking Houses"), and the original. Each issue begins with a one-page comic followed by a two-page spread, somewhat representing the opening, with a short comic at the side of the second page, presented vertically.

The series was initially designed to restart numbering for every story arc. Healthy sales of the title led to the announcement of an ongoing series starting with a #0 issue, a Pigs in Space one-shot in November 2009.
