Read a BOOK!Hey vomiteers sorry I haven’t written one of these posts in a long time.  I have been reading a lot of books but a lot of my writing time has been focused on writing a book of my own (more on that later).  I’ll try to keep these semi regular in the future though.

Today’s book is, “A.L.I.E.E.E.N.” By Lewis Trondheim

alieeen1Lewis Trondheim is a veteran to my reviews.  I loved his book “Approximate Continuum Comics”  and I enjoyed “Mr O” as well.  He has a really nice simple style and I’ve noticed because he’s european and he tends to write for younger audiences that most of these books are wordless and are just visual stories.


This is a collection of short stories about aliens in outer space.  When they do speak the language is written as funny characters that are untranslatable as far as I know.  They are cute but sometimes grotesque.  I really like the cute and simplicity of the art, the world is very lush and colorful and I think this is a book I’m going to give to my future baby-mamas.
