Close Encounters Of The Turd Kind - Part 6

Part 6

I wrap up my Last Stop cameo storyline with a little homage to Berkeley Breathed, creator of what I still consider my all-time favorite comic strip, Bloom County. That alien of his has shown up a couple times in the comic, claiming they have Elvis's brain.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [Blurg zooms away as CW explains what happened to BG] (CW) "So I helped him load his spaceship, he gave me a little business card, and then zoomed away. Unbelievable, isn't it? My first alien encounter." (BG) "Well, after hearing the truth from Agent Scott, I can believe it." (CW, looking up at the stars with BG) "I always knew we weren't alone in the universe. We couldn't have been, what with all the trillions of stars. What are the odds?" (BG) "And to think that there's enough intelligent life zipping around in the cosmos for space rest stops to be doing good business..." (CW) "Makes you wonder just how far apart everyone is out there... and if we'll get another alien visit soon." [Meanwhile, behind them – "WE ARE STILL HOLDING ELVIS PRESLEY'S BRAIN HOSTAGE ON PLANET ZORT. ALERT ANDERSON COOPER"
