Muppet Show and Popeye writer/artist Roger Langridge has announced a new series completely of his own creation at Boom Studios, and it looks downright adorable.

Abigail and the Snowman will be a four-issue, all-ages miniseries that focuses on a 9-year-old girl who moves to a small town where she knows no one. She has a tough time making friends, as kids sometimes do, until she meets a yeti named Claude.

Here's how Langridge describes the story:

Abigail and Claude become the best of friends, but to make sure he can truly be free from the “Shadow Men” chasing him, they must go on an adventure to find Claude’s real home!

If that's not fun, I don't know what is.

Back in July, Langridge teased the series in a Boom video:

A publisher giving Roger Langridge carte blanche to do the comics he wants is a very good thing. It also opens the door to great variant covers like this one from The Shadow Hero artist Sonny Liew:

Abigail and the Snowman debuts in December.
