    Anyone that enjoys the occasional Sunday comic will enjoy this, as well as those who may have grown up taking Calvin and Hobbes home from the library week in elementary school like me. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Mia Faller Jan 2, 2015

    Colorful, warm natured and funny characters make Abigail and the Snowman #1 a worthwhile read. While unique, the story's plot has a fun Lilo and Stitch meets Men in Black feel to it. The artwork gives a combination of soft lines and beautiful colors, adding to the story's playful nature. Abigail and the Snowman #1 is available for pre-order here. This issue is the first in a four-part series. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Aaron Clutter Feb 1, 2015

    Roger Langridge has created a world that is very easy to slip into. A welcoming artistic style and smooth story make this series a great addition to and a welcome break in my weekly comic book pull. I recommend this comic as the perfect blend of mystery, adventure, and fun that is sometimes so missing in modern comics. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 1, 2015

    I knew going in to Abigail and The Snowman that I was going to get story using fairly familiar situations, but I wasn't prepared to enjoy it as much as I did " and it is all Roger Langridge's fault. The creator continues to impress me with his work that brings the fun and imagination back to comics and that is something we haven't seen in a while. The art is fresh and every panel has a life to it. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this book, and if you are looking for a way to kick of 2015 on an up note, Abigail and The Snowman #1 from KaBOOM! is really great way to do it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Jan 3, 2015

    A story that's clearly geared towards kids, I found wrapping up the issue being amazed at Langridge's usual fantastic storytelling ability. The worst part, we only have three more issues to look forward to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jan 5, 2015

    Protecting for the possibility that some old-timers might discover this comic, Langridge provides some initial laughs in the form of a comedic "Men in Black" meets "Laurel and Hardy" mashup with two bumbling "bad guys" who are in pursuit of Claude, or Specimen 486 as they call him. The homage to the classic early 20th Century comedy duo could very well be missed by the comic's target audience but doesn't harm the story in the least, even if the lob does go over younger readers' heads. "Abigail and the Snowman" #1 is exactly the kind of all-ages entertainment anyone familiar with Langridge's work would expect, and even those new to his cartooning will find a delightful and enjoyable comic nonetheless.

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Jan 5, 2015

    Roger Langridge combines whimsy and wisdom into a comic that enjoys the imagination of children in Abigail and the Snowman #1. Children's imaginations can see so much more than most adults can. We see jobs, paychecks and responsibilities. Children see invisible dogs or bigfoots. These are things we never question when we're young but can't even understand once the weight of adulthood sets in. This is the world that Abigail and the Yeti inhabit, a world where children see so much more than those of us who are supposedly older and wiser. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Dec 31, 2014

    The opening issue of this mini series is certainly an enjoyable one. Though it functions mostly as an introduction to the cast and premise, Langridge does a good job to indicate what is to come. Though fairly simple, the book is well crafted in both script and art. Read Full Review
