Okay, let’s follow this train of thought. The Muppets Take Manhattan introduced the world to the Muppet Babies. Muppet Babies became a hit animated series. The cartoon spawned a comic book through Marvel Comics, which ran for 26 issues. Several years later, Disney bought both Marvel Comics and the Muppets. Thirty years after the comic premiered, Marvel announced that it will be offering a giant reprinted book of the entire Muppet Babies run.
Got all that?
All 26 issues, plus Marvel Super Special #32 (which features a retelling of Muppets Take Manhattan and the debut of the Muppet Babies) will be reprinted in a 680-page hardcover omnibus, and it will cost you $75 for the honor of owning it.
You’ll have two options for the cover, both of which were illustrated by Marie Severin, which you can view below the synopsis:
