Alex & Boba Fett

7:26 AM

Is it weird that I have a legitimate goal of getting my picture with Boba Fett while I'm at Comic Con?
Okay, I know you think it's a little weird. But odds are, someone will be running around in a Boba Fett costume, and this cartoon might just actually happen (don't worry Mom, I won't follow Boba Fett to his car or anything.) I've always had a love for Boba Fett (the bounty hunter from Star Wars) and Comic Con is probably the one place where people will know what I'm talking about.

Also, if you're wondering who the girl is that Alex keeps talking to - I've invented a new Smart Alex character named Ellie. She's one of Alex's best friends, and is based on one of my best friends, Alison - the one who's going to Comic Con with me this year. Ellie was named after the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Sense and Sensibilty's Elinor Dashwood, two of Alison's favorites. But I think I accidentally made Ellie less fun than Alison is in real life...mainly because somebody has to play the role of the straight man while my character is busy being over-the-top-ridiculous.
