Here's another oldie but goodie from Alexis Sottile and myself going back to 2008. This short appeared in the anthology, I Saw You…Comics Inspired by Real-Life Missed Connections. Nocturnal Transmission was originally a two pager created in response to an open call for submissions. Anthology editor, Julia Wertz liked the story so much she asked that it be expanded to the three page version you see above.
The inspiration from the story came from the Carl Sagan commissioned 'universal message' accompanying the Pioneer 10 Satellite launched into space in 1972. It has a number of visual signs that describe the location of Earth in the cosmos, the nature of mankind and the chemical composition of our atmosphere. An excerpt showing the drawings of a man and woman appears in the fifth panel of the first page of Nocturnal Transmission. All the information contained in the plaque can be found in this Wikipedia article.
