Cut the Rope, the highly addictive sweet and rope based smartphone game, is set to get its own digital comic book adaptation, based on lead character Om Nom.

ZeptoLab, the apps' designers, have signed a licensing agreement with Ape Entertainment that will see the character brought to comic form.

As of yet there is little to go on in terms of actual content, the announcement only just being made at this years Comic con.

Ape Entertainment has helped publish things like Kung Fu Panda and Shrek in the past, so expect seriously high quality Om Nom action. 

Cut the Rope has its sights firmly trained on Angry Bird's king of apps crown, looking to build an entire product infrastructure around the app. Expect Om Nom plush toys in September to start the Cut the Rope product family. No release date as of yet for the comics unfortunately.
