In August of last year, I started doing a strip for Richie Pages at http://theothersun.com/ It's about a human kid (Cory) growing up on another planet far from Earth. Cory is adopted by a family with a kid about the same age named Tweezle. Together, they explore, play, and get into mischief as any two 9 yr old kids would. It was easy to get into the characters as they combined sci-fi, fantasy, humor, and aliens all into one strip. The characters are likeable and I like the challenge of trying to imagine life on their planet. Even though it resembles ours very closely, it was to keep some sort of familiarity with the jokes and punchlines.
