Well – we’ve made it to 100 Lucy strips!  Thanks so much for everyone who’s read the comic so far.  I hope you’ve enjoyed watching Lucy grow.  Still lots of her story to tell!

If you’ve read the above strip you’ll see that the name of our new character (a blue dragon, aka blue angel aka Glaucus atlanticus) is…. Sydney!

This name was suggested by James Hickman – congratulations to James!  He’ll be receiving a copy of the next issue of Lucy the Octopus, out in October.
James came up the name based on Sydney Parkinson who drew the earliest known rendering of this species in 1777.  Sydney also happens to be one of James’ middle names!
That being said, the reason I went with the name is that it just seemed to fit, both the character and the world of Lucy!

Thanks to everyone else who made suggestions.  I greatly appreciate it when readers interact!
