Issue #1


cover A
(David Petersen)

When Sir Robin of Loxley (Kermit) returns to England after battling alongside King Richard in the Crusades, he finds the Loxley Swamp, his ancestral home since the times of Armand the Amphibious, has been converted into the Loxley Linx, a miniature golf course, by Prince John.

The Sheriff of Nottingham (Sam) and Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Gonzo, formerly Sir Guy of Oznog) accuse Robin of trespassing, but when they realize his true identity, they try to arrest him on the grounds that his father was imprisoned for being in possession of mold. But Robin fights for his freedom, tricking Guy into giving up his sword.

Robin meets a younger frog conveniently named Squirt (two Robins in one story would be confusing, after all), and they escape to Sherwood Forest to join the other outlaws.

Upon entering the Forest, Robin is confronted by an apparently undersized but still fairly massive ogre named Little John (Sweetums) who challenges him to a duel in exchange for passage across a bridge. Robin, though, skilled at the staff, knocks Little John into the river. (As reported by sportscaster Lewis Kazagger, Robin scores the dive a 9.8, Squirt a 10.)

In exchange for saving the ogre from drowning (by suggesting that he stand up in the barely knee deep water), Little John not only permits Robin entry to Sherwood Forest but also introduces him to his band of Merry Men: Much, the miller's son (Scooter), who wishes to design clothing; Willa Scarlet (Janice), a Zen healer; Alan-a-Dale (Rowlf), the piano-playing wandering minstrel; Arthur a Bland (Rizzo); a fishmonger (Lew Zealand) and a baker (the Swedish Chef).

Taking up the mantle of Robin Hood for the first time, Robin rallies these victims of Prince John's regime and swears to return his country to its people.

Issue #2

Robin Hood and his merry men begin their quest to overthrow Prince John by robbing from his various business ventures (including a castle made entirely of cheese, the Land of Imagination, and a sock museum) and giving the money to the poor. The Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy attempt to stop their doings, but are swiftly defeated by the heroes each time. Meanwhile, Maid Marian and her lady-in-waiting (Mildred) are visting one of the Prince's bizarre tourist traps- the world's largest venus flytrap- and Maid Marian unexpectedly finds herself to be its next course. Luckily for her, it happens to be the merry men's next destination, and Robin Hood saves the day. Prince John (Johnny Fiama) has Sir Guy tortured for his failure to stop Robin Hood and his gang (not surprisingly, Sir Guy likes this) and decides to have a spy go into Sherwood Forest. The bravest knight in the land, Sir Swineman (Link Hogthrob) is his choice- but he is scared of raccoons. With all the other knights unavailable, Johnny must send his court jester, Tuck (Fozzie Bear), disguised as a friar, to join the merry men as a spy. As Robin Hood takes Maid Marian back to Sherwood Forest to clean up, the two of them squabble. To shut her up, Robin Hood kisses Maid Marian on the lips- which causes her to karate-chop Robin Hood, sending him flying. It seems our hero has fallen in love (as well as on his face). The phony Friar Tuck makes his way to the forest, attempting to set a trap by inviting them to Prince John's castle for the feast of Saint Shecky, the patron saint of propeller hats. As they arrive, they see a number of monsters guarding the gate. Little John has the gang disguise themselves as monsters (so effectively that Arthur a Bland thinks the Langridge book can hear their screams) and make their way into the castle. Once there, an epic food fight ensues, with Robin and his men victorious.
