Beaten up, tattered, and weather worn, this volume has crossed through space to become the first extra-terrestrial comic book in print on earth. The language and even the alphabet are alien, but as human readers will soon discover, the themes and stories are universal. These interwoven stories and vignettes start out quite simply, but a darker, more complex side is gradually revealed as alien characters act out very human problems, from peer pressure to intolerance to the challenges of friendship. Beneath it's apparently childlike and catoony style, "A.L.I.E.E.E.N." explores human nature, cruelty and kindness with surprising depth and loads of humour.

There are no words in the book, at least no human words, but it doesn't need any. Everything needed is portrayed in the beautiful, simple images.
Highly recommended for anyone who loves simple, quirky comics.

in my opinion the problem is it was too messed up for kids and too stupid for some adults. the visuals were nice but not enough to carry it. it was depressing, filled with murder, torture (peeling the skin of the face of an innocent alien, wearing the skin of another) and tons of defecation, litteraly, rivers of it. ah... no. i'm good thanks. just gross. stupid. again and again it turns up and man nothing was funny for me. there's no words so it's a quick read 5-10 minutes. explains why it was a bargain price of 5.50 and i guess i got the last one because doesn't look like it's available anymore. baaaaad.

The book I received from Amazon (the English version) was a huge disappointment. The colors are very harsh and the printing is awful in comparison to the original French version.
I'll be returning my copy to Amazon and be tracking down a French version.
