“Plucky and I are the set-up characters. 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.”
“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 has clippings of our comics from Earth newspapers. Then be sure to go to our developing story page and look at updates from the resort as we battle our nemesis The Beacons of Night; 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.
