At least 100 years ago, a university student named Adam Thrasher, who goes by the pen name of Mustafa Al-Habib in order to troll Arabs, created the sometimes batshit crazy comic Space Moose, which appeared in the University of Alberta's Gateway student news publication.
The comic, which began running in 1989 and ran until 1999, follows the adventures of Space Moose, a nihilist, pansexual, sodomite, and general lover of the buttsecks, along with his 3 friends: Bald Dwarf, Marlo Smefner, and Billy the Bionic Badger, through everyday life on the sunny beaches of Canada.
In the beginning
At least 100 years ago, Mustafa Al-Habib was sitting in high school trying to think of a way to make his BFF break up. He drew a character with all the intrinsically funny characteristics that he could think of: googly eyes, buck teeth, scruffy hair and a gigantic Jew nose that dominates the entire face. When it was all put together, it came out looking like a moose, so he added a couple of crooked antlers. Space Moose was born.
OH! the drama!
In 97', Mustafa penned a comic that appeared in The Gateway entitled "Take Back the Night", which was a short series that featured Space Moose and his roommate, Billy the Bionic Badger, ambushing some feminists participating in a take back the night march. Many lols were had within the Space Moose fan base, but many people cried drama and the students cried to their own version of the internet police and had the Space Moose comic removed for two weeks while Mustafa faced punishment at the hands of the university administration.

The Internets: Serious Business.
The last Space Moose comic was entitled "Boner in Decades", and was penned in 2003. It would be the last comic known that Mustafa Al-Habib would produce. It gave Space Moose fans a small glimmer of hope to think that the comic would make its return, for it had been the first offering since Mustafa's Millennium Moose, which came out in 1999. Sadly, roughly 2 years later, after the release of "Boner in Decades", spacemoose.com succumbed to Internet disease and went offline 4 evar. However, the site is archived at archive.org: May 26, 1998 – March 21, 2003
Mustafa now pursues his career in Spinal Injury research in the city of Toronto.
