Muppets Depicting Classic Stories

In recent years there have been beautiful looking graphic novels which give classic stories a muppet twist. Below is some of the gorgeous work of artist David Petersen related to these projects. See here for many more of his prints (both muppet and otherwise). Many thanks to Andrew Tripp for the heads up.

    What an utter waste of bandwidth!

    You do realise your many images could be compressed at least 10-fold without discernible loss of quality, right?

    (Lazy, lazy)

      You do realise your many images could be compressed at least 10-fold without discernible loss of quality, right?

      I don’t even know what those words mean, so, no, I don’t realize any such thing.

      It means you’ve scaled down the visual size of the image without scaling down the amount of information transmitted.

      This means that, right now, to load your homepage involves downloading multiple megabytes. FWIW, I’ve done so, and now my cache stores those so I need not get them over and over.

      If you trust me, perhaps check out this thread at the crommunist’s place, where I’ve already discussed this.

      (If you get it right, your readers (not just I) should thank you)

    Well except for the spine cracking, simultaneous boobs and ass shot of miss piggy in the first one they are all great. Even Miss Piggy gets the female comic book superhero treatment.

    • Ryan R

      That’s actually not Piggy, it’s a character from the Muppets mid-90s show “Muppets Tonight.” Believe it or not, her name is Spamela Hamderson. She played Snow White in this comic, while Piggy played the evil queen.
