Long as we’re on the subject of Muppets and major sporting events, I thought this deserved a reblog after 2 years ;)
My Favourite of my Muppet Show comic covers. This was a variant for the inaugural C2E2 con and I went all-out to make one Chicagoans could be proud of.
Couple of original touches had to be changed for print: Sam was reading the Tribune and Beaker’s crackerjack box had to be altered slightly. Janice’s top originally read Cubs.
Skeeter’s first cover. The only other time she made it, she was dressed as Robin on a SDCC cover by Roger Langridge.
Rowlf’s banner reads ‘Eamus Catulli’. You gotta be a Cubs fan to get it ;)
The fun part was having everyone in either Cubs or White Sox colours without showing any logos for trademark reasons.
