Roger Langridge takes over Popeye

When we spoke to Roger Langridge at Thought Bubble last November, he mentioned that in 2012 he’d be announced as the writer of a mysterious ‘big property’ comic-book, but that he couldn’t tell anybody what that is. Well today Langridge, whose work includes Fred The Clown, Snarked and Thor The Mighty Avenger, has been announced as the writer of a big property comic book. And that comic book is POPEYE.

Joining him on the title, to be published by IDW, will be Bruce Ozella, who will be contributing both short and long stories for each issue. It’ll be very similar to Fred The Clown, then, with one-page strips sitting alongside five or six page stories, all drawn by the same artist. AMAZING NEWS. Roger Langridge is one of the best humourists in comics, and there is no better news than news of Langridge getting more work.
