Emma and the Alien

Emma and the Alien is an online comic strip about a little girl and her best friend, a marooned space alien stuck billions of light years from home.

Emma is idealistic and still young enough to view the world with new-found wonder, while the Alien is street-smart and universe-savy, with megalomanic delusions of ruling the planet Earth with some half-baked scheme.

Follow Emma and the Alien as they tinker with other-worldly technology, go on wild adventures and try to stay one step ahead of trouble in this online cartoon.
