i loved this so much! i don't follow the original instagram for these alien comics, but a lot of people i follow tend to repost them on their story. in some ways this reminded me of everyone's an aliebn when you're an aliebn too, which is one of my favorite books of all time! though this one definitely leaned more on the humor side of things. this is such a fun and quick little read. if you're looking for a little mood booster, i'd recommend checking this out!

This will be a firm stack of paper with pictures that you can acquire in exchange for currency.
I am digesting moths just contemplating its impending arrival.

The comics I’ve read before had me smiling. The new ones made me giggle, especially new terms that I had not seen before, like two-wheel foot pusher (bicycle) and dying plants (flowers) that you put into the death cylinder (vase). I greatly enjoy how these comics make you reevaluate what we say as humans and how sometimes even our normal sayings are funny, but they become extra funny when translated into alien.

And then the last comic!! Curious development.

Simple concept, huge laughs. Pyle has aliens re-enact/experience everyday human activities to expose the hilarious craziness of things we accept as perfectly normal.

One of the many perks of working in a library is when things are ordered that you didn't know existed! So much delight in one little book!

Perfect from start to finish! It ended exactly how I wanted it to.

What began as a social media sensation is now a book, and what a gem it is. For those who are unfamiliar, Strange Planet features a group of aliens who venture into adulthood, into friendship, into nature, and through the general everyday monotony of life. These beloved creatures provide a series of observations about the odd customs of the world in an exceedingly clever way while remaining utterly relatable. Not only do they use inventive phraseology to describe common events, but they have ...more

If you've never read Nathan W. Pyle's "Strange Planet" strip you should look it up online today.

If you've seen it you know what you'll be getting. This book is nicely bound, printed in colour and features some new and revised content.

Highly recommended.

Strange Planet manages to capture the essence of being a human while relaying the emotions through weird little aliens, and I'm pretty sure that's exactly how life works, to be honest.

These comics are just such a delight. I read a big chunk of this on the subway and got funny looks from how much I was giggling. The other beings did not understand!

Forever g r a t i t u d e that Book Depository offers the pre-order shipped to Indonesia. My mouth always make the low curve whenever I see the comic.

When I talk about this comic to friends, they often refer it as “the one with aliens who speak like robots”. And they are not wrong. But honestly, I never think that way. I just love the wordplay but never consider them as alien nor robot. Am I alien? Am I robot?

15/10 would recommend.

These comics are hilarious and I love all of them! I really don’t have to explain this I think: if you know them you know how great they are and if you don’t you, you really need to do an insta search for Strange Planet and prepare to spend hours chuckling.
Best thing!

I'm going to pre-order this because the daily Strange Planet comics are a highlight of my day, I just love them so much. <3
I love these comics. They are hilarious. Quite a few of them made me laugh out loud and we're very relatable. I just love these big eyes aliens.

I have been following the artist from the beginning and have enjoyed all of the work he has posted. So I could not resist getting this book, which does contain a lot of new comics that have not been posted on social media.

Overall this is a great collection and I really recommend it if you like to observe these beings.

I adore these comics such a cute way to show the absurdities and sweet moments that is human society and life. I stopped reading the comics as they popped up online so that I could enjoy this when it finally came in the mail. Glad I did, there’s so many funny ones! ...more

That was an enjoyable read. It put a smile on my face at many points.I gave it 3 stars because it wasn't as funny as I expected but still some of the ideas made me think.

Love this comic. It's really insightful about humanity, but sometimes, it makes me realize that I'm the alien lol.
