Happy Friday! Not only is it the end of the week, but it’s also time for another Albert the Alien update!

Today’s update has Gerty and Wally going head to head – and also introduces another character, Martin MacFly. Martin is a parody of – yes, you guessed it – Marty McFly from the awesome and amazing movie series Back to the Future. What I love about Gabe’s design is that he both modernized the outfit of Marty (played by Michael J Fox in the movies) enough to be his own character, but kept enough of the color scheme and outfit choices so as to be recognizable.

So far all of the kids we’ve met have one thing in common: They get picked on by Wally.

However, the last panel suggests we’re about to meet our new student… And we will, when we update next week!


I am attending C2E2 this weekend in Chicago! You can find me at the Reading with Pictures booth (#1330) again, selling copies of the anthology (as well as Albert the Alien and Junkyard Chase).

We will also be doing a live reading on Sunday on the Variant Stage from 1:15-2:15pm, showing off some of the new RWP volume 2 material. Including the brand new Albert the Alien story specifically written for this new Graphic Textbook.

There will be a lot of fun and exciting things going on, so I hope to see you all there!
