This is a first in the Pix Plus series: Pix teamed-up with characters from a comic I’ve not yet read! So what makes these characters so special? Truth be told, I don’t know. Maybe they won’t be so special. But I know ABIGAIL AND THE SNOWMAN’s a series by Roger Langridge, who did SNARKED and Muppets comics for Boom studios, wrote THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER among others for Marvel Comics, and has made all kinds of terrific short stories and mini-comics over the years, and of course his character Fred the Clown. And that’s almost all I need to know to want to read it.
Roger is a top-notch cartoonist (and an incredibly nice man) and I knew I wanted to do a Pix Plus with something of his. How serendipitous, then, that ABIGAIL AND THE SNOWMAN #1 comes out exactly three weeks from today. on 12/31/2014! Knowing next to nothing about it and based on the cover image I worked up this piece, Abigail, the Yeti and Pix looking like they’re having a blast.
