A group of early 20th century teens and their dog looks through a collapsed brick wall into eerie lighting. The large opening is shaped like the familiar profile of Sherlock Holmes. The London skyline is behind. Title reads "The Baker Street Peculiars." Credits read "Roger Langridge, Andy Hirsch, Fred Stresing."

BOOM! Studios, 2016

The Baker Street Peculiars are on the case! When a giant lion statue in Trafalgar Square comes to life and wreaks havoc on 1930s London, it seems like the perfect case for the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. With an overwhelmed caseload, however, Holmes recruits the help of three precocious young detectives-in-training (and one cunning golden retriever) to solve the mystery. Molly, Rajani, Humphrey, and Wellington (the dog) will have to work together and use all their wits if they are to uncover the truth behind the living statues and save London. But on the legendary Baker Street, nothing is as it seems and their biggest mystery might be the real identity of the famous detective who brought them together.

Frank, may be doomed to pay for the “sins of the father” at the hands of the axe-wielding Tin-Man and the ghost of the Wicked Witch. Can Frank save the day and redeem the Fizzle family name, or will the drizzly ghost of the Wicked Witch of the West destroy them all?

I’ve done covers and interior work for quite a few different licensed books, including Garfield, Regular Show, Adventure Time, and more. This work generally involves adopting another artist or studio’s style, a whole different skill from what my own projects require.
