The Martians, Part II

Here's my second attempt at the Martians.
Click it to enlarge.
I'm maybe 90% happy with the cartooning.
I wanted more detail inside the ship, but found it too distracting.
I like science, but haven't read much on science fiction. I hope the gag isn't a cliche from the genre.

Constructive criticism: The sound effects in the first planel are hard to see since they are black text on dark blue background.

I like the aliens, their faces tell the whole story in this strip!

I think the cliches aren't a problem at all. Aliens are supposed to be green, and saucers are piloted using steering wheels. :-D

The gambling bit is a good thing to throw in to mix it up a bit, just like the rubber ducky consumer complaint.

Thanks for the kind words, ghostbuild. I agree the sound effects are hard to see- ah well, next time I'll remember. :)
