When rumors first started circulating late last year about the status of the Disney Muppet/Pixar license with Boom! Comics, I found them unlikely because artist Roger Langridge (who was the most significant reason I thought The Muppet Show was the best all-ages comic out today) was still working on stories to be published sometime this year.
That became increasingly unlikely once news broke that Marvel took over the Pixar license (and the comics themselves, reprinting work originally created for Boom! with no notice or additional compensation to the artists — that’s working for Disney). Now I’m afraid that Langridge has confirmed that his remaining stories — part of a “Four Seasons” storyline — are unlikely to see print.
On the bright side, Langridge is running some of the pages at his blog (that’s one of them shown here), so we aren’t completely deprived. They do make me want to see the whole story, though. I don’t know if fans making their wishes known to Disney Comics (which has a Twitter account) would help or hurt, but I want to tell *someone* they have an audience ready to buy this material, if it was only available.
