What is the Story of Alien Resort?

comics for Earth newspapers

“Making comics is our job. It’s what we do.”

Coy founded Alien Resort after crash-landing his spaceship on a Pacific island many years ago.

“We like to work,” he says, as he leads a group of Earthlings on a tour of the resort. “Just like Plucky over there.”

Plucky, engrossed in a stack of papers, barely looks up.

“Plucky and I play the set-up characters; the other two are the comedians. Right now, Plucky’s studying her lines.”

“Who writes the lines?” a tourist asks.

“His name is David Davis. He writes comics for us and then he helps us get them published in Earth newspapers.”

“I’ve seen your comics,” another tourist says. “They’re in our local paper. We thought they were a little unusual at first but now they’re like part of our family.”

“I’ve seen your comics at alienresort.net,” somebody says from the back.

“When you visit our website,” Coy answers, “you will land on our developing story page, where you can see regular blog post updates, most of them narrated by me, about the efforts by The Beacons of Night to stop us from making comics; they say we’re stealing jobs from Earthlings. 

“Also be sure to visit the Alien Resort Museum page, which has clippings of our comics from Earth newspapers.”

“Are you going to take us to your leader?” one of the tourists asks.

“Ignore him,” the others groan in unison.

Lawyers Headed for Alien Resort

Up until now the only Earthlings who have visited Alien Resort island are the king’s sailors delivering supplies. Now we’re about to receive a contingent of lawyers sent by the king to represent Plucky in the mainland’s request for extradition. The lawyers will be Alien Resort’s first overnight guests, and they’ll be staying in my ship over near the lagoon. I asked Lmao if I could couch-surf at his place; he said be my guest.

International Incident

Officials on the mainland have declared an international incident over the king’s refusal to honor the request for Plucky’s extradition. “We have sent our cruise ships to his islands for years,” one of them whined during a newscast. “Our citizens have purchased every kind of jewelry imaginable from his shops. I personally have a parrot bobblehead somewhere out in the garage.” Deadpan has a project that he works on day after day; he says success doesn’t happen overnight.

The King Goes Rogue

Here is today’s newscast: ”Mainland officials say they’re shocked by a reply they received to their request for the extradition of a criminal suspect. The king of a tiny Pacific archipelago has told the officials that a surrender of the alien Plucky of Alien Resort is an event that will never occur in his lifetime. The officials’ stunned response was ‘We thought the king was one of us’.” When Deadpan witnessed a birth, he said it was a once in a lifetime.

Order of Extradition

Our landlord the king skyped us today with more unsettling news: Officials from the mainland flew to his capital city and delivered orders of extradition commanding him to turn Plucky over to their authorities. He assured us that he would do everything in his power to prevent this from happening. Lmao’s rulers once wanted him to use Roman numerals; he told them not on his watch.

Plucky Indicted

Ever since we heard that the indictment was worded to include non-persons, we could only assume that it was one of us. And since Plucky is the only one possessing extensive technical ability, we figured they were accusing her of creating the lights in the sky reported by military pilots. Today’s newscast confirmed our assumptions; now we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Deadpan knows how to bind pages together; he says he learned it from a book.

Unsettling News

We’re worried about a report in today’s news concerning the government’s investigation into the lights in the sky reported by military pilots. Earlier this year I wrote a post about government agents questioning our writer Mr. Davis concerning our possible involvement. Today’s news report stated that the investigation will now be led by an individual whom we know to be a member of the Beacons of Night. I’m having a problem with my telescope; Deadpan said he would look into it.
