Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But, mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
The film's trailer is available below.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
The FBC Staff and I love supporting independent creators, and when we have the opportunity to spread the word about innovative projects from our friends across the pond, we always jump at the chance! I recently learned that Uproar Comics, a UK-based publisher, is set to launch a new app for an interactive comic book experience on July 31st. (Check out the website countdown here!) For full details on the app, please see Uproar's official press release below.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JACKSONVILLE, FL – July 25, 2013 – Indie comic book writers Rachel Pandich (Womanthology: Heroic, Aspire) and Gerald Rathkolb (Anime World Order) have teamed with a myriad of talented writers and artists to produce an Indiegogo campaign for Skin Crawling Comics, a horror-themed comic book anthology. Running from July 25, 2013, through Friday, September 13, 2013, the campaign aims to raise funds to publish the creator-owned project while celebrating scary storytelling and providing a platform for independent creators to showcase their abilities.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2013, the FBC Crew attended Stripped: The Comics Documentary panel, which featured the creators of the comic strip documentary which has been four years in the making. Stripped, a Kickstarter success story, is a documentary that brings together the world's best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what happens to it as newsprint fades away. The film includes interviews with Jim Davis (Garfield), Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), Jean Schulz (Peanuts), Mike and Jerry (Penny Arcade), Matt Inman (The Oatmeal), and 90 more of the world's best cartoonists. Exciting to add is that the film includes the first-ever recorded interview with Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes).
