ABOUT ALBERT THE ALIEN…
Albert the Alien is a multi-Harvey Award nominated (Best Online Comics 2015, 2016) all-ages sci-fi adventure series about the first foreign exchange student from another planet. Inspired by the Saturday morning cartoons of the 80s and 90s, this webcomic series updates for free on AlbertTheAlien.com on Wednesdays and Fridays, as well as on Mark Waid’s www.Thrillbent.com.
Created by Trevor Mueller (with characters designed by Gabo), Albert the Alien first appeared in the educational anthology Reading with Pictures, which was nominated for two Harvey Awards in 2010. He stems from Trevor’s experiences growing up as a nerdy kid among peers that were not interested in the same things (like art, comics, and video games), and has strong themes around making new friends, having fun adventures, using your imagination, and anti-bullying.
ABOUT THE STORY:
Albert the Alien is just a normal everyday kid…from another planet!
He’s come to Earth to lean about humans as the first intergalactic foreign exchange student. And when Albert’s involved, even the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
