Roger Langridge's Female Sherlock Holmes Comic For Boom! Studios Next Year

I've been a fan of the work of cartoonist Roger Langridge for decades. I even published him in the mid-nineties, a strip called Bill The Clown in those old X-Flies comics. One legal letter later and he was Fred The Clown.

In recent years, Langridge has been working on a number of comics with Boom! Studios starting with the Muppets comic which then got nabbed from Marvel as well as his original series and Eisner Award winner, Snarked. His more recent adaptation, Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow handed him a Harvey Award.

Well, I understand that early 2016 will see a new Roger Langridge original series with Boom! centered around a gender-flipped Sherlock Holmes. If previous Langridge projects are an indication, I expect it will be a rare combination of earnest characterization, humor, and clever story-telling.

March solicits?

Till then, here's a species-flipped look at Holmes from Langridge instead…
