Reader's Diary #1698- Jomny Sun: Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too

I wanted to like Jomny Sun's everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too but I feel it came up short.

The art is cute, simple but with a unique style. The premise of an alien investigating Earth to study humankind, accidentally befriending the other flora and fauna which it has confused for humans, and nonetheless learning a bit about humanity nonetheless, has so much potential to be funny and profound at the same time.

Alas, a whiff of existential philosophy and a strong taste of quirk is about all you get.

I did like the subtle nod to/dig at The Giving Tree.
