Saturn Sally started out as part of a contest for designing heroes. Her design won that particular round and thus was born a small webcomic. Her initial appearances were short and intended to be humorous, but over time the length of the strips changed. More panels were added and longer stories began to develop, the tone shifted from light-hearted gags to a more serious narrative.
Still, the future world of Sally Saturn is a place where little green men roam the cosmos in search of food, and sentient pinatas have equal rights. The moon is colonized and its president is one of the aforementioned sentient pinatas...
