    Perhaps the reason the Muppets have never done a serious adaptation of Peter Pan is because the cast just isn't there. With few exceptions, there simply aren't Muppets that match the personalities of the core Pan characters. And that's where this book suffers the most: it shamelessly (and horribly) shoehorns Muppets into roles they just don't belong. Janice and Sam the Eagle are gross parodies of their true selves, while Kermit is completely, entirely, and irrevocably out of character.

Janice and Sam the Eagle are gross parodies of their true selves, while Kermit is completely, entirely, and irrevocably out of character. Piggy and Gonzo as Tinker Bell and Captain Hook ring true (and are both beautifully drawn), but they are not enough to carry the bulk of the story. In short, this is a travesty. It has--by far--the best illustrations of any of the BOOM! Muppet comic books to date, but the writing is a disaster.

    Not as funny as the other volumes, but cute. Tries to skip the icky racist crap in Peter Pan, but ends up with cultural appropriation instead.

    I read this as part of a reading challenge and I am glad that I did. Mind you, I didn't take much convincing - anything with the Muppets in it is an instant drawcard for me. I have taken off one star only because there were times that some of the characters just didn't feel right in their roles, but really that may have been my bias as much as anything. Miss Piggy as Piggytink is an absolute stunner and Gonzo as a reluctant Captain Hook is another winner.

Well worth looking at.

    It's always a little weird to see Muppets playing other prominent characters, sometimes in contrast to their own personalities. This book does that a lot with Kermit, as he portrays Peter Pan in a very un-Kermit manner; Pan is basically the antagonist in the book, which in many ways critiques the whole childlike manner of the character. And it's interesting to have normally secondary characters get center stage (Janis is Wendy, and really the star of the book, perhaps shared with Piggy as Tinker It's always a little weird to see Muppets playing other prominent characters, sometimes in contrast to their own personalities.

I haven't read Peter Pan so I don't know how true to the actual story it is, but it stands pretty solidly on its own, making some good points about growing up and letting go, while still being funny and silly (although not nearly as much as the more traditional Muppets comics). And actually, Sam the Eagle steals the opening and gets some good moments throughout, as do Gonzo and even Rizzo. So for fans of some of the second string Muppets, this is a good chance to see them shine.

    I had these downloaded on my iPad and they were unknowingly out of order, so I accidentally read 2-4 and then 1. But, issue 1 only set up the Darling children playing in their nursery and it being Wendy's last night there so I really didn't miss much. 2-4 were the real adventure as Peter Pan (Kermit) and "Piggytink" take the children to NeverSwamp and they meet Captain Hook (Gonzo) and his pirates, as well as "the hippies" (Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem).

This one seemed to have less of the humor and bad puns that are the hallmark of the Muppets (and were prevalent in King Arthur) and focused more on the story. However, they seemed to alter much more of this story - mainly that Hook never meant to be a pirate and isn't bad at all so he never fights anyone, and sails back home with the Darling children at the end. As everyone knows this story so well, it seemed very anti-climactic.

    The Muppets melded so nicely with the story of Peter Pan. Almost every character was in the perfect role for their personalities or abilities. It seemed really well thought out in this department. The best character was probably Piggytink, as her part was written to perfection. It makes me wish they had done Peter Pan in Muppet Classic Theater or had made a movie version. Something I enjoyed was the little in-jokes for really big Muppet fans, such as the addition of Louis Kazagger and certain wor The Muppets melded so nicely with the story of Peter Pan.

Something I enjoyed was the little in-jokes for really big Muppet fans, such as the addition of Louis Kazagger and certain words and phrases for which some characters are known (like how Piggy says “teensy" and Kermit says “yeesh"). Sam the Eagle's parts were particularly hilarious. My only real complaint is that the ending seemed a little rushed, but I can forgive that. It's a Muppet graphic novel, not an epic.

    I've really enjoyed all of the Muppet releases thus far from Boom Studios, but this one I liked a little less. There were less laughs in this one and I feel like they may have taken a few too many liberties with the plot of Peter Pan (not that I'm a diehard fan of it or anything). What is really noteworthy in this volume is the artwork! The artist in this should do the rest of these "fairy tale" themed Muppet comics, because she is really, really great.

The Muppets look like Muppets and not cartoon characters which I really like. Overall, this one is worth picking up, just don't expect as much fun to be had as the volumes that have come before.

    Sadly, I was not as impressed with this book as I was with Muppet Snow White and Muppet Robin Hood. The story is set in Boston instead of London and while Sam the Eagle as narrator is humorous, seeing Janice as Wendy was a bit odd. Although to be fair, as you get into the story, it makes more sense. However, the thing I loved about this book was the gorgeous illustrations. They were clean, bright and just pleasant to look at.

    This is the best of the Muppet Graphic Novel series so far in my opinion. The Muppet humor seems to be there and the artist did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of the characters. Although the storyline is stretched from the actual Peter Pan story, it keeps with the craziness that is the muppets. A nice book to introduce young readers to the world of the Muppets.

    Most of the characters slide right into their roles, although Kermit doesn't quite feel right as a selfish Peter Pan. This is a bit more of a departure from the source material than most other Muppet adaptations but the story works well and still feels like Peter Pan. The jokes really pick up in the back half. Great use of Sam, Gonzo, and the always underrated Pepe.

    Once again, I primarily checked this out from the library for Amy Mebberson's art. As usual, I loved Mebberson's style, but for the book itself, I have to agree with Peyton. I just couldn't get into the story and having just finished season one of The Muppet Show, it was clear how ill-suited Janice was for Wendy.

    The Muppets and Peter Pan are two of our families top favorite things so of course this book was an instant hit. Filled with hilarious jokes and wonderful illustrations. A great take on a wonderful tale.

    A few parts were lame, but on the whole, the humor was spot on. This would make a great live action film. (Hint Hint, Disney.)

    The telling of the story of Peter Pan is a little lacking, but the muppetyness was fun.

    I think this does a great job balancing the Muppets personalities with the roles they're playing. It's fun and has some great art.
