Comics Are Great! 40 - Jim Henson was Complicated

Jimhenson
In this special extra episode of Comics Are Great! I'm joined by Dave Roman for a discussion on the new Muppets film. We compare and contrast the movie with what's come before, and dig a little at the special considerations that come out of creating a franchise out of an intellectual property, and how the performance aspect of the Muppets complicates our relationship with them as fans and in terms of keeping the series relevant.

SPOILERS AND OPINIONS, in case you haven't seen the new film yet.
