Julian Rodriguez Episode One

Series: Julian Rodriguez (Book #1)
by Alexander Stadler Illustrated by Alexander Stadler
Julian Rodriguez is on a mission for the Mothership. He's been sent to Earth to study human lifeforms and their bizarre habits — from their disgusting diet (orange sticks called "carrots," flavorless liquid called "water," and the revolting substance known as "veggie dogs") to their repressive treatment of their young (forcing them to carry out menial tasks known as "chores," withholding access to the great cultural masterpieces called "cartoons"). When Julian's Maternal Unit assigns a hideous task, it's nearly too much for the hardened space veteran to bear — but he finds his courage at last.
Illustrated with black, white, and orange pen-and-ink drawings. "First in what readers will hope will be a robust series, this hybrid of fiction and graphic novel dusts off a favorite conceit with a slick swipe of edgy visuals and tart commentary... It”s impossible to read this without laughing." — Publishers Weekly
