Muppet Thor

Canaan over at Occasional Comics has created a meeting between the Muppets and Thor that is a real joy. With all of the Thor fanart flying around all over Tumblr these days, I wasn't really sure what to expect, but this was just fantastic. The creator clearly loves the Muppets and the Mighty Thunder God, and the resulting comic is filled with that love. The humor is very much a Muppet fan's.

But then there's the ending. The last few pages where Canaan pays homage to Jim Henson. That was just... I didn't expect to be moved to actual tears, and it was a very nice surprise.

Go read it.

(And don't you wish Marvel would put out little stories like this now that they have access to the Muppets? I'm hoping for more Disney and Muppet stuff from Marvel.)
