Roger Cosmonkey is a series of webcomics created by filmmaker Cory Edwards. The series premiered on May 16, 2011[1] and so far has consisted of two series; Roger Cosmonkey and Roger Cosmonkey 2: Mega-Pigeon.[2] Both series were posted on Edwards' Twitter account, and consisted of two tweets a day, over the course of ten days. Each tweet, called a "Twittersode", included a link to a single comic strip in the series.[1][3] It has been described as the world's first episodic Twitter series.[4]

Edwards developed the idea shortly after his deal to write and direct a feature film of the television series Fraggle Rock expired. He found the process of creating the series for Twitter to be liberating since it gave him complete creative control.[4]
