Om Nom’s campaign of candy consumption is about to extend even further. Ape Entertainment has announced that they are turning the lovable protagonist of ZeptoLab’s mobile gaming franchise Cut the Rope into a comic book series, to be published by them. The goal of the comic series will be to help expand the story of the franchise, and to show where Om Nom came from. Ape Entertainment are familiar with turning apps into comics, as shown by the Pocket God comics that have come out. The art for the comics will be done by experienced artists Antonio Alfaro (known for his work on Fairly OddParents) and Ricardo Garcia, who are inking the series of 12 issues that should start rolling out over the next year, starting in August. The comics will be distributed digitally, initially through an app for iOS; an Android version is not confirmed yet. A trade paperback version is possible, as has been seen with the Pocket God comics. For more information on the upcoming comic, listen to the latest episode of The Portable Podcast, recorded at the Ape Entertainment booth at Comic-Con. As well, some plush toys of Om Nom will be released starting this September.
