Hey all! I’ll be representing Mission Control again at Kids Read Comics this June in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Not only that, but I did a new bookmark for Ellie which you can get there too (for FREE!). I’ll post some more info on Kids Read Comics as it draws near, but here’s a look at the bookmark. It’s got shiny spot varnish on it!

Ellie was representin’ at last weekend’s Kid’s Read Comics festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here’s some pics!
Paul’s equally talented daughter made this incredible Ellie figure!
My pal Dennis stopped by with this fantastic homage to my college strip (which he often appeared in). Great Star Wars reference there.
And Dennis has a talented daughter who drew up this portrait of Ellie. Thanks, Al!
And here’s my convention stash.
Hi, everyone! I’m going to be at Kids Read Comics at the Ann Arbor District Library this Saturday and Sunday. It’s a great convention full of all kinds of artists and events all geared toward kids. Best of all? Totally FREE! So come on by. I’ve gathered up some Ellie stuff from the Mission Control archives that I’ll have for sale and I you might even get a peek at some art from the graphic novel!
I hope to see you there! Click the pic for more info:
Just a reminder that I’ll be at Kids Read Comics at the An Arbor District Library this Saturday and Sunday in Ann Arbor, MI. I’ll have some Ellie goods on sale, as well as a brand new little sketchbook full of all kinds of fun.
And, don’t forget, Ellie On Planet X is nominated for the Kids’ Comics Revolution 2013 Awards in the category of Favorite Webcomic! You can still vote (if you’re a kid), so head on over to the link and fill out a ballot.
The Strang Institute is closed today for Memorial Day here in the U.S.A. – which is why there wasn’t a new installment from Ellie this morning. She’ll be back on Thursday this week. Meanwhile, I wanted to share a few things going on for Kids Read Comics, an upcoming comic event at the Ann Arbor District Library on June 22 and 23. I’ll be representing Mission Control there and will have a few things Ellie related to sell, like comics, buttons, and prints. Right now this will be the only place to get your Ellie swag (until the Institute gets an online gift shop set up).
First, here’s the bookmark I designed, featuring a new interpretation of this event in Ellie history:
Next, I’m putting together a little manga-sized sketchbook inspired by the cool sketchbooks that Chris Sanders does. Hopefully these will be ready on time as I’m still finishing it up. Here’s a spread of Ellie related stuff, but there’ll be a whole variety of fun things to look at inside.
Finally, I made up this fancy banner to hang behind the booth!
Lastly, don’t forget! You can still have your kids vote for Ellie On Planet X for Favorite Webcomic at the Kids’ Comics Revolution Awards! The winners will be announced after the Kids Read Comics event next month!
Thanks for reading and Ellie will be back on Thursday!
Here’s a nice surprise! Everyone at Mission Control just found out that Ellie On Planet X is nominated for the Kids’ Comics Revolution 2013 Awards in the category of Favorite Webcomic!
From the website:
“KCR hosts Dave Roman and Jerzy Drozd have teamed up with Chris Duffy (Nickelodeon Magazine) and the Ann Arbor District Library to honor some of the best kids’ comics to come out in 2012. You can vote by picking up a ballot in the Novella Room (2nd floor, Toronto Reference Library) at the Toronto Comics Arts Festival and Kids Read Comics, or use the online ballot below. Winners will be announced June 23rd at a special ceremony at the conclusion of Kids Read Comics in Ann Arbor, Michigan!”
We’re really excited! We’ve never been up for an award before. And we’ve got some awesome comic friends included in the category too, like Nemu-Nemu, Nedroid, My Sister the Freak, and Cucumber Quest! It’s a big deal just to get nominated!
If you’re a kid and Ellie is your favorite webcomic, go to the Kids’ Comics Revolution website, download the ballot and give us a vote! Thanks ahead of time!
I still have a few exclamation points left over, so here they are:!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! !! !!!!! ! !
Last weekend at Kids Read Comics I met several artists that were all kinds of awesome. One of them was Diana Nock, creator of a web comic about another little female automaton, The Intrepid Girlbot! I picked up her first volume and lookit the cool drawing she did for me. Go check out more of Girlbot’s adventures at intrepidgirlbot.com!
This last weekend was a blast at Kids Read Comics in Ann Arbor, Michigan. So much so that I didn’t get a chance to get back to Mission Control to upload Ellie’s latest transmission in time. I mean, it’s not as if you aren’t all waiting to find out if Muffin ever figures out how to get her working properly again, right?
So I’ll be back at the Strang Institute tomorrow and Ellie’s latest will be up Tuesday morning. In the meantime, here are a few pics of some of the sketchcards I did at Kids Read Comics. Enjoy, and see you tomorrow!
Hey everybody! The Strang Institute is going to be closed the rest of the week for the 4th of July holiday here in the U.S. So, alas, no new comic on Thursday. I know, I know. To make up for that, here’s a poster I did a few years back for Kids Read Comics, the event I’m attending this Saturday and Sunday in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Jeff was green. Muffin’s nose was pink. How weird is that?
Check back though. I may still be able to sneak into Mission Control and post a few things between now and next Monday. See you then!
