Comic Strip

Are we alone?

Chances are, given the billions of stars and planets in the universe, life does exist out there. Many questions remain, however, such as: What kind of lives are these people living? What do they look like? Do they have issues with their families, friends and bosses? Are these beings battling inner demons?

The new comic strip, "Knot Alone," by Scott Nychay looks to answer these questions. The title refers to the obvious, but it also alludes to the fact that we are not alone in our universal problems.

Instead of science fiction, "Knot Alone" focuses on dysfunctional families, poverty and addiction. The main characters are Skip, an astronomer, and his homeless father, Billy. Both live on the overcrowded planet of Ono in the Andromeda galaxy.

"Looking at our issues from a different angle can give us a fresh perspective," Nychay says. "I think it's comforting to imagine others out there struggling to find peace and peace of mind - just like us."
