Kathy illustrates the characters, with David as associate illustrator. Each single-panel comic strip consists of a set-up character and a comic. Plucky and Deadpan underwent appearance makeovers during 2018.
Coy (set-up) is the patriarch and founder of Alien Resort. He crash-landed on Earth after a five hundred year spaceflight. His tranquil manner provides a perfect set-up for the comic character’s ensuing absurdity.
Plucky (set-up) is a bossy spaceship captain who got stranded on Earth while trying to rescue Coy. Rumor says she has a crush on Deadpan.
Deadpan (comic) responds like a wise old sage, adding a layer of absurdity to his deadpan comic replies. He says there is no way Plucky has a crush on him.
Lmao (comic) is the comedian of Alien Resort and makes no effort to contain his humor. He came to Earth with Plucky and remains her best friend. He uses nail polish.
