My Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I initially picked up the first book in this series because of Jonny’s review. It sounded like it would be a cute read and the fact that it was collection of comics just added to me wanting to read it. 

I don’t follow this author, so Jonny’s review was the first I had heard about this but apparently, he shares his comics on Facebook and as it says in the synopsis there is an Instagram with the same name. This did end up being a cute read and a quick one. I tend to read graphic novels/comics in one sitting they’re just so easy to read.

This doesn’t really have a plot it just follows several aliens and the things they get up to on earth. I loved all of the different names they had for human things. For example, the tongue is a called a flavor muscle a cat is called a vibrating creature and socks are called foot fabric tubes. That is just a few examples there are so many more and I found them to be cute and funny at times. The art is very simple but bright and I loved it. Were these graphic novels mind blowing? No but I had a great time reading them.

  1. Aw, I’m glad to have gotten you into these great comics. They’re so whimsical, funny, and a breath of fresh air that I think so many people need right now. I hope he comes out with a bajillion more so we can keep reading on!

      1. You’re very welcome! They make great coffee table books, and when my friends come over I always brag about how funny they are.

        He’s definitely got some die-hard fans in both of us. 🙂
