The Third Greatest Story Ever Mumbled

Does Messianic Lore Exist In All Species?
How He Was Squashed For Your Sins And Why
Roaches by Paul Schmitt

Do roaches have their own religion? By being close contact with humans for thousands of years, as witnesses to human history and our behavior, have they absorbed some of our legends and created their version of events that center around their own species?

That depends. Have you ever watched a bee as it assesses you? They hover and observe, not because they are unintelligent, but because they are making an educated guess about you. Can they same me said of cockroaches?

Bitchzilla/Chauvinism

13 Mar

Comic Pages Released To Stunned Internet Browsing World
Leading Critics: “This is clearly the work of a deranged mind.”
Bitchjira!

These two pages are non-consecutive in the book and in the webcomic but they each deal with female roaches spazzing out. Spazzing out really hard, too. It’s interesting that one character, Bitchzilla attacks unprovoked, while the Molecular Biologist bug in “Chauvinism” attacks for very good reason after she is jeered and nearly set upon by two guffawing morons.

Chauvinism v. Jiu Jitsu

These two pages are great examples of the art style being implemented for the second edition of the Roaches webcomic. Please continue to subscribe to the site with Blogger and Feedburner for more comics and cartoons. As long as you are viewing and subscribing I will be making ’em.

The Great War

Roaches by Paul Schmitt
A character sheet for retro-roach soldiers from the up-coming Roaches short.

The New Year is here and with it the anniversary of Roaches. It was just over two years ago this winter when I started this title. Way back in the winter of 2010. In the beginning it was just a few gags scratched out in a sketchbook. I remember being on a wicked caffeine high in this little coffee shop in Ohio and taking a break from fighting a mean infestation of real-life roaches that were in my apt. building.

I showed the bits to a few people who, much to my surprise, really enjoyed it. So, I took up my first webcomic right there and then.

Since then, the zany Roaches found an audience on-line, a book has gotten published, it’s toured a few cons and now a short is in production. This little title has gotten all grown up!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more mischief.
