Snarked! is the new comic from Roger Langridge, who wrote and illustrated many of Boom! Studios’ Muppet Show comics and was also the writer of Marvel’s Thor: The Mighty Avenger. When Disney took back the license on those, Langridge moved on to his own comic, Snarked!, a con-man comedy starring Lewis Carroll’s characters The Walrus and The Carpenter. It’s a kid-friendly tale of a princess in trouble, told with humor that the grownups can appreciate as well. The first issue went on sale this week; look for it in finer comics shops everywhere, and in the meanwhile, enjoy this preview! (Click on pages to enlarge.)
