BOOM! Studios is an independent comic book company founded in June 2005. The publisher partnered with The Walt Disney Company in 2008 to produce several series based on Disney properties, including the Muppets. Boom also publishes Farscape comics for The Jim Henson Company.

In addition to a direct comic book adaptation of The Muppet Show, Boom! also published related mini-series, mostly literary adaptations of the likes of Robin Hood and Peter Pan. In July 2008, Boom! editor-in-chief talked offhand about "things like Muppet Robin Hood, or The Three Musketeers or whatever. They're talking to us about following sort of the paradigm they set up in the movies about classic stories retold with the Muppets."[1] That September, company co-founder Ross Richie echoed the concept at the Baltimore Comic Con: "The idea is not just to do The Muppet Show, but Muppet Robin Hood, Muppet Sleeping Beauty, Muppet Prince Charming, Muppet King Arthur, or titles like that... Our ongoing publishing plan over the next three years is to do the bulk of our stuff in that way."[2]

Every story save for the Meet the Muppets series and Muppet Sherlock Holmes was edited by Aaron Sparrow, whom the characters and even the writer talk to throughout the story.

In 2011, BOOM! anounced that they had lost the Muppet license. It was subsequently handed over to Marvel Comics, who reprinted all of The Muppet Show Comic Book's story arcs and eventually published the final arc, The Four Seasons, as a mini-series.

In 2013, BOOM! acquired Archaia Entertainment which holds the licenses to other Henson properties such as Fraggle Rock.
