Meanwhile, at Good Comics For Kids...

Today at School Library Journal's Good Comics For Kids blog, I have a nice long interview with cartoonist Roger Langridge, whose work you are probably familiar with from Snarked, The Muppet Show, Thor: The Mighty Avenger and, of course, IDW's Popeye series, the release of the first collection of which occasioned the interview. You can read the piece here.

Langridge talked about the difficulty of writing Popeye's dialogue, the distinction he draws between writing Jack Kirby's Thor for Marvel and E.C. Segar's sailor for IDW and how he approaches writing for another artist. So if you only follow one of the many links I'll likely end up posting her on EDILW this week, make sure it's this one.

The above panel is taken from the Langridge-written Popeye #1, which was drawn by Bruce Ozella.
