I was halfway through with Thursday’s strip when my tablet bombed and I lost the whole thing. But here’s an illustration that could possibly lead into it (and the strip’ll still show up on time even though I have to start over — booooo!)
I awoke to an explosion of activity on the website this morning! The cause? This cool article about Ellie on Planet X at io9.com, an online blog/magazine about sci-fi and the science related, leading a gang full of people this way.
Now Ellie is charming and adorable. Thanks peeps at io9!
Months ago, while we were still waiting for more data from Ellie about her discovery of Jeff the Quadrapus, other members of Mission Control and myself scribbled out our ideas of what we thought he looked like based on the first fuzzy photos.
