Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!

Back in the day, comic strips were a place for artists to showcase their talents with, you know, actual artwork. These days, with everyone jumping on the web comic bandwagon, it seems that all is required is one scene cut-and-pasted into multiple frames.

Not so with the Tim Rickard’s syndicated sci-fi comic Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! It’s an honest-to-goodness comic strip that even delivers some funny. I’ll let wikipedia give the description:

Brewster Rockit is the Captain of the R.U. Sirius (a spoof of the phrase “are you serious?”), a space station orbiting earth that acts as both an embassy for visiting aliens as well as a first line of defense against hostile aliens. The comic often goes off into long story lines based upon different science fiction movies and books, with Brewster and his crew typically coming out victorious over the countless evil villains they face.

The latest story line involves an alien race called the Emoticons, who have lost the ability to communicate verbally.
