Today’s strip is courtesy of Paul Fricke, the mastermind behind Blue Moon Toons! I asked if he could round up a newspaper strip from the 1970s featuring Ellie as she began her trip to Planet X. Who would know what kind of adventures she would have on her long journey?

Paul’s current project is Mr. Drawing Board Belly, a fun look at the world of an old timey comic book artist. It’s colored to look like the Ellie strip above, mimicking the look of those 70s comics. He’s got plenty of other comics to see on his site. Please check them out too!
