Eisner and Harvey Award-winning cartoonist Roger Langridge (Snarked, Thor: The Mighty Avenger) and writer Ryan Ferrier (D4VE, Rocko’s Modern Life) have produced what is easily one of 2018’s most fascinating comics: Criminy, an original graphic novel in the style of classic Disney and Fleischer Studios cartoons. Arriving in comic shops September 19th and in the book market on October 2nd, Criminy follows Daggum Criminy and his family as they seek a new home following a pirate siege on their island. There are ripped-from-the-headlines parallels to be drawn from the Criminy family’s plight, but no deep metaphor need be found to enjoy Ferrier and Langridge’s collaboration. In advance of the graphic novel’s release, Paste has an exclusive sneak peek at Criminy interior art, to give you an idea of just how unique this book looks.
