Go To
Draw an oblate spheroid, that's the Earth. note 
A 5-10 paneled Webcomic about personifications of the Solar System and other celestial bodies, following the adventures of Earth and their celestial friends.

The art style could be described in a way as Hidekaz Himaruya meets CLAMP. It incorporates elements and inspirations from both (with Hetalia: Axis Powers apparently a major influence) while at the same time retaining something distinctive from either two.

Main comics can be found HERE .

Compare Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls, My Moon, Stellarscape, and Nebula.

This series provides examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: Other characters aside from the Solar System, still has no character design and only mentioned on character summaries.
    • Others characters are drawn, but haven't appeared on the comic yet.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Earth is too androgynous for the other characters to tell, with some assuming Earth to be male and some female. Most simply don't think of it much at all.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Black Hole's skin is darker than most of the other characters but his exact ethnicity is impossible to pin down and his hair is apparently naturally white. Earth and Mercury gain darker skin colors after their redesign.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Many of the stars in constellations wear headgear themed after their constellations.
  • Animesque: Fitting its Hetalia roots, the strips themselves are done in the style of 4-koma webcomics. After the 2017 revamp, the style switched over to faux-screenshot sets as if the comic had its own anime.
  • Anyone Can Die: Everyone has more or less come to terms with the fact that they can all die in some manner eventually, despite being incredibly long-lived beings.
  • Art Evolution: Here's a comparison of the cast's 2011 looks to their 2017 redesigns.
  • Artistic Age:
    • The planets look barely out of their teens but are actually older than they look.
    • The stars on the other hand tend to look at least in their twenties for the most part.
  • Art Shift:
    • Usually done during daydreams and when they are frightened or shocked.
    • In one strip, Saturn's style seemed to turn 3D whenever he was photographed.
