Would those covers have any shot at showing up at HeroesCon this year?

I have removed myself from our convention stuff because I always want to kill the owner when I do one, so I am unsure what our plans are. When is Philly? I will ask Jon next time I talk to him.

The Muppet Show #1 (of 4)

This was for kids? It seemed super wordy for a kids comic. I loved the first half, the second wasn't as strong. Loved the Muppets when I was a kid...even Muppet Babies haha. This was fun, I was laughing out loud to Fozzy's hat routine, the Swedish Chef, and Statler & Waldorf cracked me up as well. I still think Kermit is a bitch and Miss Piggy is way too much pig for him to handle. Coulda used some more Gonzo and maybe more than just an Animal sighting, I am sure they will show up more in the next issue but I don't think I will be... I got my Muppet fix. The art was solid, the opening spread was pretty fantastic but nothing that really knocked my socks off but I am not sure the source material could have been any better, I mean they are Muppets.

STORY - 7.5

ART 7.5

OVERALL 7.5

Is it the same weekend as Charlotte. I seem to remember them talking to Sheldon recently which leads me to believe we are going to Charlotte, but who knows?
