The Bogies is a comic strip in The Dandy and Turbo Extreme.[1] It features bunches of nasal mucas and their adventures. Many of the characters names are twists on some famous person or character from pop culture. These characters will often act like celebrities but in a gross manner. It originally appeared in Toxic in 2005, but it moved to The Dandy in June 2008. It has been drawn since the beginning by Nigel Auchterlounie. The last strip in Toxic was a Hock Hogan one, and the first Dandy one was a Splatman and Gobbin story.

Collected Editions[edit]

Two 56 page books have been given away in issues of The Dandy Xtreme which collect together a large amount of stories from the series as well as adding facts, puzzles, jokes and posters. The books were titled The Bogies Exclusive Mini Mag! and The Bogies Exclusive Mini Mag: The Big Green Slimy One!.
