IMG_-q9pawyThese are Obsticons!  Or rather that’s what I called them when I was a kid.  Derivative of some 80s kidvid trademarks, no?   (They are not called this in the actual strip.)  You can’t tell in black and white, but they’re green.  They’re essentially Oscar the Grouches in spacesuits.  And, yeah, they’re zombies.

It’s this moment here where the value in having Danny around is apparent.  He’s just a mundane, stuck here on this zany space adventure.  It’s actually more fun with him here, if you can believe it.
