We are proud, excited, thrilled, terrified, and spazzed to announce that your pals from ToughPigs will be hosting a Jim Henson panel at this year’s New York Comic Con.
We’ll be celebrating Jim Henson: The Biography with author Brian Jay Jones, along with some very special Muppet-related guests: Jim Henson Legacy Executive Director and Muppet designer Bonnie Erickson, Jim Henson Company archivist Karen Falk, and Prairie Dawn and Zoe performer Fran Brill! And of course, your moderators will be Joe Hennes and Ryan Roe from that little old website for Muppet Fans Who Grew Up.
The panel will be held on Friday, October 11th at 7:45pm at the Jacob Javits Center, which will be filled with comic fans and cosplayers and pop culture junkies for the New York Comic Con. We’ll be in room 1A01, and you may want to arrive early to guarantee entry. Once the room fills up, that’s it!

We hope you’re as excited as us to sit in on the Jim Henson: The Biography panel! We’ll see you on October 11th at 7:45pm!
