Notes

96 page Hard Cover. What if the space capsule that brought him to Earth had landed in rural England? That's the premise of this graphic novel coauthored by Monty Python's John Cleese. As one might expect from its Python pedigree, the story is seldom subtle in spoofing Britishisms, from National Health Service waiting lists to cricket. Onetime Superman illustrator John Byrne's art keeps the character recognizable. Less outlandish than Cleese's better-known work, this tongue-in-cheek take on superhero conventions should please comics and Python fans alike.
