Prom on Mars!
Alex, a fellow writer from Project Greenlight started his own web based comic called Prom on Mars. Please check it out (everyday if you can, since it's a daily strip!).
Here's what he recently sent me in an e-mail:
In case you haven't heard it's going to take a year for the Seniors of Liberty High to get to their Senior Prom. Not to mention that the Prom's on Mars.
Melanie’s Pop: “Why can’t you go to Honduras?”
Melanie: “Everyone voted on Mars!”
Melanie’s Pop: “What if you run out of oxygen?”
Melanie: “I'll buy more!”
"Prom On Mars" is a new, free, web-only comic strip, running for just
one year at www.promonmars.com. Aptly dubbed “retro-future” by its original venue, www.popimage.com, "Prom" reads like an extra-terrestrial “West Side Story” with the Martians being the life-forms from the wrong side of the planet.
Melanie: “Is he cute?”
Liz: “Mel! He’s a Martian!”
Liz: “And he’s a food-worker!”
www.promonmars.com contains the entire run of the strip in its archives with new strips added weekly, until the series finale in June, '04. Additional Prom-related pages are added monthly and, before the year’s over, readers will even be able to vote for the Prom King and Queen.
So, grab your virtual cummerbund and catch the next shuttle to Mars!
Please check it out everyday if you can!
