Roger Langridge To Write ‘Popeye’ Series
Roger Langridge has been announced as the writer on Popeye.
The Snarked! writer is working on IDW Publishing‘s new licensed title with artist Bruce Ozella.
“I’m especially pleased that IDW have decided to go with a Segar-flavored interpretation. As much as I like some of the later versions of the character, for me, it’s those early strips where the magic really happened.
“Just as well Segar drew everybody with big feet, because Bruce and I have some enormous shoes to fill!”
Popeye #1 will debut in April.
