314 – Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book

Our Best of 2017 series continues with a special little graphic novel, “Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book by Jomny Sun” by Jonny Sun. An alien is left on Earth to research and study humans but ends up cataloging his interactions with all kinds of animals in the natural world. We dive into the metaphor of the book, the philosophical sampling going on, and talk about where to place this work in our brain space. Is this a comic or a philosophy book? Plus, we spend a lot of time up top yammering about the upcoming Solo movie, Dragonball Super, Cloverfield Paradox, and Star Trek: Discovery.
