The 2017 Character Exchange - oh my, my, my, what fun. In a shocking twist, Gene disappeared from the pages of Cosmos.... but in his place arose the hulking blue frame of The Knight, lead character from Aran Frogatt's sci-fi saga Arkian! My main concern in creating this three-page fish-out-of-water tale was not so much the crossover itself, but the consequences of the cross-universal switcheroo for those transposed: how did it affect them? What did they think had happened, and about their new, alien surroundings? How would they attempt to cope with their new circumstances? As such, the story is seen from the perspective of - and narrated by - The Knight, filtering events through his perceptions; rather than (as per normal) the Cosmos cast. His initial fear and confusion at being dropped into some sort of a trap slowly gave way to relief, and baffled amusement, as the small green creatures spouting pop-cultural nonsense around him turned out to be wholly benign.... and weren't about to turn into alien bio-weapons the minute his back was turned....
