By the Hoary Hosts of Harvey!

Good lord. I appear to have scored a bunch of Harvey Award nominations. (What is the collective noun for award nominations, anyway? A "gaggle"? A "plethora"? Given that there will be more losers than winners, perhaps it should be a "disappointment".) Anyway, I'm up for Best Cartoonist (!), Best Original Graphic Publication for Younger Readers (for The Muppet Show Comic Book), and Special Award for Humor in Comics (as well as technically being included in the ACT-I-VATE nomination for Best Anthology).

I have a feeling that a lot of the goodwill I'm getting for the Muppet comics is because I'm fortunate enough to be standing on Jim Henson's enormous shoulders, but I'm grateful nonetheless. Thanks to everyone who put my name in the hat.


  1. hey, that's rad!!!!!
    and anytime you can get away with saying words like "plethera" you gotta use em.
    I hope I spelled that right....

    anyway, congrats on the nominations!!

  2. Thank you for your sincere contrafibularities!

  3. To me the succes of the Muppet Show books is also that it has found you an outlet for your own typical sense of humor and let's you use a stage setting, quirky songs and gragmented storytelling. Plus the fact that you draw a mean Muppet. Compared to the woolly look of Muppet and Sesame Street newspaper versions, your look is refreshingly unsentimental. I don't know anyone more suited to this series than you.

  4. I think a lot of people, like me, when they first heard the muppet book was going to happen thought "Roger Langridge drawing muppets? That works!" It was meant to be and a Harvey would be thoroughly deserved.

    I'd especially love to see you win the Special Award for Humo(u)r in Comics as I know (and largely share) your views about how badly overlooked comedy can be and how underappreciated the skills (which you have in such abundance) necessary to do it well.

    Good luck, sir.
