There’s no new comic today (due to stuff), but in lieu of one I do have this little treat to give you. We’ll have a new installment for you on Thursday.

A few weeks ago, in case you didn’t read about it, I was explaining how back before Ellie was launched into space, Dr. Strang took her on a promotional tour around the world. They met world leaders. They were guests on popular television programs. And, of course, they also made appearances at local shopping centers.

One of our readers, Frank, wanted to know if I could post something from Ellie’s world tour. So here’s a newspaper ad for a department store appearance. Plus it features a drawing of Ellie that doesn’t really look like Ellie. Dig that pony tail!
