There is a new web site in support of the Monster Allergy animated series that has been developed out of the Italian comics created by Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa along with Iginio Straffi.
I’m not certain how involved they are in the development of the TV series, but it promises to be a cut above the usual fare just from the look of the previews and stills from the initial episode.
The protagonist is Zick, a boy who is able to see the invisible monsters in his home (and all around us) by virtue of his allergy to them. The site is still not filled out in many areas, but has some information on the characters and concept, and bears watching for future additions.
The development of the show for US audiences is a joint venture between Kids’ WB, Cartoon Network and Rainbow S.r.I., the Italian animation production company. Monster Allergy will be part of the Kids WB lineup in the fall.
