Today’s strip is again imitating real life. I had never heard of the Apollo Moon landing hoax theory until my friend Mike told me about it. The whole conversation that we had just cracked me up and I knew I had to use it in the strip. And I found out today, that I could not have had better timing.
Today is the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, and in four more days, it will have landed on the moon. I remember studying this as a child and thinking it was amazing. It was amazing that we could leave our own planet and survive in an element that was completely foreign to us. I have always been a fan of space exploration and space in general. As a kid I wished that Star Wars and Star Trek were real. And maybe, sometime in my lifetime, they could be. I still believe the moon landing was real and I look forward to the day that we can all explore space as easily as drive to the grocery store.
