# 3 – Beboa

| November 3, 2011 | 0 Comments

Beboa is a Martian with telepathic abilities.  Officially, he is the Martian Ambassador to our solar system.  Unofficially, he works with his other planetary friends to protect earth from a loose coalition called “Creatures.”  Beboa is six foot seven, but projects a calm demeanor.  However, he can defend his friends and himself quite forcefully when needed.  He is a competent musician on the Martian pelthor, a stringed instrument.

<Creator comments:  a telepathic Martian?  Really?  How imaginative of me.  On the other hand, I think it is interesting that his clothing resembles the Starfleet uniform from ST:TWOK.>

[In 1974, at the age of 12, I drew a series of “comic books” detailing the adventures of Merrill, a 15-year-old human boy, in the Other Land, an invisible dimension which co-exists with our own.  The characters I am submitting throughout the 30 Days are the inhabitants of the Other Land.]

About the Author ()

I am a middle school teacher. Back in 1974, I created a series of comic books based on the adventures of the members of the Difference Club. (Anybody remember Bic Banana markers?) The Difference Club consisted of humans, aliens, elementals, and other beings dedicated to one cause: protecting earth from ... the Creatures. I still have these books. Last year, I decided to write another story about them. It's not a terribly original idea, but I wondered what would happen if I discovered that, by writing them in 1974, they actually came into existence in another dimension? How would they feel about me leaving them alone for decades? I promise that you WILL be entertained, if only by laughing at my artwork.
