Earthlings Visit Alien Resort

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

Coy is the patriarch of Alien Resort. In case you thought extraterrestrials were mean and out to get us, a few minutes with Coy will relieve you of that notion.

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

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

“Plucky plays a set-up character. She’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.”

Coy responds: “We’re a little different, I have to admit. Especially when we’re making Alien Resort comics.”

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

“When you visit our website,” Coy answers, “you will land on the Comic of the Day page, featuring a free Alien Resort comic every weekday. You can then visit our Hall of Fame page, which displays clippings of our comics from Earth newspapers. Then be sure to go to our news blog page and look at updates that come directly from the resort; there’s even a button to receive the updates by email.”

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

“Ignore him,” the others groan in unison.
