First look at art from Jim Henson’s The Storyteller anthology

Nate Cosby has posted some artwork by Jennifer Meyer, Colleen Coover, Tom Fowler, and Roger Langridge from Archaia’s upcoming Jim Henson Storyteller anthology. (That’s the Langridge piece, above.) For a bit more on the project, check out Cosby’s Wondercon interview with our own Tim O’Shea.

Roger Langridge teases new projects

Roger Langridge posted some tantalizing news at his blog yesterday about what he has been up to since he stepped down from the Muppets comics earlier this year.

Three things, actually. He is scripting a chapter for his webcomic Mugwhump the Great, which looks like it hasn’t been updated in a couple of years. No new material is up yet, but now is as good a time as any to catch up. Langridge is in negotiations about a print collection as well.

Next, very vaguely, “I may have a small Jim Henson-related project coming up.” More to come on that, apparently.

And finally, a mini-comic! “I’ve had a fun time working for the Diamond crowd over the past couple of years, but it feels nice to be doing a proper comic again,” says Langridge. That’s the cover up there. Stay tuned for more details.

Go take a look.
