While Jules Faulkner is taking a little break from her fantastic comic Promises Promises, a few of us other comickers stepped in to take her place. Click the pic below to check out my contribution!

I can finally clue all of you in to what we’ve been up to here at Mission Control for the past few months! It’s really exciting news! I’ve been working on an Ellie on Planet X GRAPHIC NOVEL!
I’ve been in touch with top people who think Ellie would make a great story, and we’ll be presenting it to publishers when I finish getting my submission together. There’s still a lot of work to do. I’m writing a script and then have to do a large number of sample pages. This is going to keep me quite busy for some time.
That’s about all I can tell you for now. I won’t be updating the comic here at the website any time soon, but I’ll post some things to the blog from time to time to keep you in the know about goings on here at Mission Control.
Thanks again, all of you, for following Ellie and Jeff and Muffin all these years. And prepare for more of them to come!
Here’s a few things to share with you that I did during our break at the good ol’ Strang Institute. First is a little snippet of a pinup drawn by the amazing Denver Brubaker, creator of one of our favorite webcomics, Tales Of A Checkered Man! He asked if I would add some colors and here’s the results (at least part of them). You can see the entire pinup in issue #6 of Aw Yeah Comics!
Next, I met up with some other comics creators last week for a sketch night and drew this little pic of each of our respective characters, featuring Joe Foo’s Desmond, Jay Fosgitt’s Bodie Troll, Mike Roll’s Apooka, and Ellie, of course!
And then the always awesome John Martin added the incomprehensible Vordak to thwart any do-gooding our heroes might attempt!
Don’t forget, Ellie returns Monday! See you then!
Check out this awesome Christmas card that Josh Buchanan worked up featuring Michigan based cartoonists! He’s got his character The Rocket, Rob Worley’s Scratch from Scratch 9, Jerzy Drozd’s Jerad from the Front, Jesse Hughes’ Cosmicat, Mike Roll’s Apooka, Jay Fosgitt’s Bodie Troll, Dave Woodward and Chris Sopsich’s Gordie Gnomo, Joe Foo’s Desmond, Ben Hatke’s Zita the Space Girl, and our l’il ol’ Ellie down there on the bottom!

Here’s a little chart I put together featuring the skulls of some of Planet X’s inhabitants. Not everybody we’ve encountered is represented since they don’t all have brain helmets.
Bonus: we get to find out Ernie’s species name! Click the pics to bigafy . . .
Here’s a little sketch of the Jungle Oasis on Planet X where Jeff and Muffin make their homes. It looks different here than what you’ve seen in the comics as I’ve been imagining it being more of a coral reef kind of place lately, with several levels and nooks and crannies. Maybe we’ll see it show up like this in the future!
Ellie reader Richard John Hunt sent me this little Jeff from his sketchbook:
This makes me happy too! Thanks Richard!
And take a look at Richard’s Deviant Art page. He’s got some great looking stuff there (That first one made milk come out of my nose).
