American Mythology Comic Series Celebrates Oggy And The Cockroaches’ 20th Anniversary
by James Ferguson
Oggy and the Cockroaches, the French animated comedy series from Xilam has already taken the world and the internet by storm over its twenty year history. This Summer, the characters come to comics thanks to American Mythology. We’ll see how the clean freak Oggy will handle his three nasty cockroaches, Joey, DeeDee, and Marky in a new series.
Michael Wolfer, editor-in-chief of American Mythology says:
“A television series spanning seven seasons and 350 episodes! Over twenty years! A movie! An internet presence most properties only dream of! Yeah, we were pretty psyched to partner up and bring Oggy to comics. This is one of those properties that everyone says, I can’t believe it doesn’t have a comic book series! Well, guess what? We are! And it’s going to be every bit as awesome as you’d expect! Oggy and the Cockroaches is animation and characterization at its best. If you were a fan of Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry classic cartoons as a kid, or just plain love silly and outrageously fun stories at heart, Oggy delivers on every level. American Mythology promises to bring the zaniness of these cartoons straight into our comics and keep fans of the series smiling!”
Oggy and the Cockroaches features a colorful cast of characters from around the neighborhood, including Bob, the bulldog with anger management issues, Oggy’s cousin Jack, and a kind, nature-loving cat named Olivia.
The comic will be non-verbal, just like the TV series. I’m interested to see how that will play out in the comic.
Look for Oggy and the Cockroaches this summer from American Mythology.
