ABIGAIL AND THE SNOWMAN #1-4 (Roger Langridge)

Presque 3 ans après Snarked, l’extraordinaire Roger Langridge revient chez le label jeunesse Kaboom! avec Abigail and the Snowman, une nouvelle mini-série en quatre chapitres qui débutera en décembre.

La petite Abigail, neuf ans, a bien du mal à se faire des amis jusqu’au jour où elle rencontre Claude le Yeti qui vient de s’enfuir d’un laboratoire secret du gouvernement. Mais pour être sûr d’échapper aux Hommes en Noir, le duo doit partir à l’aventure pour découvrir les origines de Claude.

Ci-dessous, les couvertures du premier numéro par Roger Langridge et Sonny Liew:

Ah, ça m’intéresse.

[quote] I tend to be quite verbally-oriented for a cartoonist. I envy cartoonists who work things out visually, but unless I’ve got words in front of me spelling the story out I can’t get it clear in my head. I have a terrible sense of direction, too, and I suspect the two are connected: in both cases I need a map to know where I’m going. So, once I have a germ of a story to build from, there tends to be a lot of writing. Once I actually start to write, the ideas tend to come much more easily. I hardly ever have ideas before I begin; I sit at the keyboard at set times every day and make them happen by the act of writing itself. That’s always been my process… dragging the stuff out by sheer force of will!

Well, the drawing side of things is way more time-consuming than the writing, so I have to treat that as my full-time job, really, and put the hours in every day, or it would never be possible to produce the work to a deadline. So I get my writing done in the first couple of hours of every day, and then I spend the rest of the day drawing. I’ve been doing that for so long now that I scarcely know who I am without a piece of paper in front of me and a pencil or a brush in my hand.[/quote]
