The Satellite Sisters – seven gravity defying girls from space.

We first meet the Satellite Sisters in NEOMAD Episode Two – The Last Crystal, where they have their hands full monitoring space junk, looking after country and getting the Love Punks out of trouble. In Episode Three – Porkchop Plots, the Love Punks and Satellite Sisters join forces to save a gigantic tourist shuttle from intergalactic catastrophe!

The girls have been involved from early on in the Yijala Yala Project, collaborating on the creation of the Love Punks game and working as colourists for NEOMAD Episode One. As NEOMAD developed they decided to take the plunge and create their own crew of characters, and so the Sisters were born.
