Guest – Roger Langridge

We are very happy to see the return of one of our favourite guests to this year’s Comic Con. He’s an Eisner and Harvey Award-winning cartoonist and is responsible for The Muppet Show Comic Book, Thor the Mighty Avenger, Snarked! and Fred the Clown as well as his ongoing autobiographical work The Hotel Fred Diary Comic.

Please join us in welcoming the extremely talented Mr Roger Langridge. Roger’s work, spanning over 30 years, and counting, is instantly recognisable and he’s not just “the muppets guy.”

You will find his work appearing in comics such as Popeye, Dr Who, The Rocketeer, Batman, 2000AD and Star Wars! Roger’s work was even included in Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M Shultz and was, in this person’s opinion, the best strip in the book!
