Premise
A loon (the bird, although I’m sure the association with being loony was intentional) meets an alien (who also looks like a loon) and they decide to date. Hijinks and mostly sex-driven humor ensues. As of this writing, this comic is only about 20 strips long and updates weekly.

What’s Awesome About It?
The art is the first thing that’s noticeable for me, as its very cartoony and colorful. The character designs are stylized, but work well as cartoons and add to the humor of the comic. The comic is gag-driven, with most of the humor deriving from the situation – an alien adapting to a new world, and lots of sex jokes and references (although the comic has no particularly explicit imagery, the dialog is definitely R-rated). Some of the jokes are rather funny, while others fall flat, being simple gags on not too interesting character archetypes or the like.

My Thoughts
As this comic is very short at the moment, I feel like it’s hard to judge fully properly. What’s here is sort of hit and miss, but I thought it was enjoyable given that it didn’t take much time at all to read. I would recommend this comic if you want a short cartoon-style strip with a few decent mostly sexual jokes. If that doesn’t sound like something you’d be interested in, there’s nothing here for you in this comic at the moment, but given that it’s relatively new that may change in the future (although the slow once per week update schedule means you might be waiting a while).
