Hands up everyone who was expecting the descending vessel to be the bus!
The Klaxicans were the villains in the fourth Girls in Space Story ‘Around the Universe in a Bath Towel‘. The way that that story ended left it pretty clear that they would make further appearances in Girls in Space. So I thought it would be fun to create a little misdirection so as to make their reappearance something of a surprise.
I mentioned a few weeks back that I need to take a break from the comic for a couple of months while we move into (and fix up) our new house. The return of the big party dude baddies seemed like a suitable cliffhanger to leave things on. The story will pick up again in May.
In the meantime, I intend to keep posting Alphabet Girls and other sketches, to keep the site alive! Single images (especially sketches) are far easier to put together than a comic page.
Sorry for having to break the flow of the story. I hope you will come back in May to see how things conclude.
