When I first imagined the King Roach series I was thinking of serializing it as a webcomic. So I looked around to see if there was already a comic (or a comic character) called King Roach. Turned out that there was. At the time there was even a website that featured the comic. Rather than get attached to the name I started thinking of something else. It took a while but I came up with another name that I like quite a bit better. I’m keeping that name to myself for now and continue to refer to the character as King Roach. That other King Roach doesn’t appear to be active at the moment. Someone still holds the www.kingroach.com registration but there’s nothing there right now.
