Roger Langridge
Roger Langridge (born 14 February 1967) is a New Zealand-born comics writer/artist/letterer, currently living in Britain.

Langridge originally came to public prominence most notably with the Judge Dredd Megazine series The Straitjacket Fits, a surreal, hallucinatory, convention-bending strip set in an insane asylum with a cast of characters who realized they were in a comic strip and burst from the edge of the frame.

His cartoon style proved perfect for the series and he continued to work for the Megazine, in addition to a series of comedy books dedicated to his Buster Keaton-inspired character Fred the Clown, which he wrote and drew as a webcomic before self-publishing the material as small press titles. His work on Fred the Clown was nominated for two Eisner Awards, a Harvey Award, a Reuben Award and an Ignatz Award.[1] Langridge also does illustration work. He has also provided artwork for Shaenon Garrity's Smithson webcomic.

Langridge has worked on Fin Fang Four, with Scott Gray, first for Marvel Monsters, then a series of short stories and in late 2008 as a digital comic on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.[2] He was the writer, and usually the artist, for Boom! Studios' The Muppet Show comics (2009-12).[3]

In 2012, he scripted for IDW a four-issue Popeye miniseries, illustrated by Bruce Ozella, so successful that even before the second issue was released it was expanded into an "ongoing" series, according to Langridge.
