# 10 – Warf

| November 10, 2011 | 0 Comments

Warf is the remnant of a sentient comet which met with disaster above the earth when it collided with a rogue asteroid.  The bulk of the comet eventually became enmeshed in the asteroid belt beyond Mars.  (You’ll meet him later – his name is Sterry.)  A small chunk of the comet fell to earth.  Warf retains some sentience, and acts somewhat as a gatekeeper for the Other Land.  He can’t converse, but understands what is said to him.

<Creator comments:  The second of two Star Trek coincidences: Warf’s name is very similar to Klingon Worf.>

[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.
