Introducing the Lost Cactus Comic Strip
The Lost Cactus National Laboratory and Testing Facility – the namesake of the comic strip – evokes the intrigue of Area-51, with its sun-faded structures, Quonset huts, and hangars set against a colorful Southwestern desert landscape. The heart and soul of the comic strip’s cast are the spunky Bentley the Bee and his quick-witted sidekick, Ty the Dinosaur. They’re both genetic mutants created in the laboratory of Doc, the mysterious scientist and founder of Lost Cactus. General Fox is the befuddled base administrator; Penny is the all-too-popular Chief Medical Officer, and Professor Otto is the eccentric base psychiatrist. Sammy is an accident-prone ground squirrel who owes his anthropomorphic traits to an irradiated acorn. Cato the Alien is Doc’s out-of-this-world science advisor. A panoply of lab rats, clone zombies, cacti, lizards, celebrities, and politicians make guest appearances throughout the strips.
About the Author
John Hopkins’ distinctly original perspective on ever-evolving technologies, current events, and pop culture – blended with his keen interest in science fiction, conspiracy theories, paranormal, and urban myths – provide the grist for the comic strips, stories, and essays that are Lost Cactus. So sit back and enjoy, and if you feel compelled to don a tinfoil hat, don‘t worry, you won’t be the first.
