If you know Roger Langridge’s work, you’re most likely familiar with his Muppet Show comic, which was the most faithful portrayal of those characters since Jim Henson passed away; Langridge’s writing hit the exact balance of silly, sarcastic and emotional, and his bright and clean art captured the essence of the Muppets. Or you may be aware of his much-lauded Thor: Mighty Avenger, a unique look at the God of Thunder. If you’ve been impressed by his work up till now, get ready for a treat!
Roger Langridge returns to Boom Studios with not one, but two new projects. First up, on October 1, it’s Jim Henson’s The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow. Then, in December, Langridge will present his first original creater-owned project since the Eisner-winning Snarked; Abigail and the Snowman is a four-issue miniseries for all ages that might be described as “Lilo & Stitch meet Calvin & Hobbes.”
Abigail is a 9-year-old girl with a huge imagination who moves to a small town where she’s the new kid at school, struggling to make friends. All that changes when she meets a Yeti named Claude who has escaped a top-secret government facility. Abigail and Claude become the best of friends, but to make sure he can truly be free from the “Shadow Men” chasing him, they must go on an adventure to find Claude’s real home!
Based solely on the covers and Langridge’s previous work, I’m looking forward to it.Cite
