When Nonsense Collides!

When I started Cosmos back in 1999, I had a grand total of no characters. No, it's true! The concept - four panel newspaper-type strip featuring random little aqua-green alien things - actually came before any consideration of names, locations, a formal cast list.... anything! Much like evolution in our four-dimensional world, however, out of the unformed primordial ooze came one distinct Cosmosian, then two, then three; they started congregating, talking ot one another, calling each other by name - and Lo! I had myself a set of fun, crazy people to write fun stories about! Let's meet them, shall we?
