Off-Panel: Miss Piggy and Kermit Call It Quits

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Tauntauns aren’t really filled with candy, but it would be amazing if they were. These sugar cookie snow lizards are stacked and filled with candy entrails that will surely save your hunger in a pinch.”


“Kermit the Frog, who headlines ABC’s The Muppets mockumentary comedy (premiering Tuesday, Sept. 22), revealed on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that he and longtime love Miss Piggy are on the outs.”

WHAT. No. This isn’t allowed. (Also I love how everything geek-adjacent has had a comic book at one time or another so I can make anything relevant for Off-Panel.)

“Marvel, you and I are taking a break. It’s not me; it’s you — and you made the decision really easy. In the past two to three weeks, I have watched you disrespect and disregard marginalized voices and I’ve had enough.”

A sharp and on-point article. I’ve been disappointed in Marvel these past few weeks.
