The Being Reflects on Life While Watching the Planet Rotate
by Nathan W. Pyle
William Morrow, November, 2019
STRANGE PLANET is a very funny and sweet comic collection about aliens making dryly comic observations about pets, birthdays, human relationships, feelings, and other, strange Earthly fascinations. The book proposal was based on this instagram account – www.instagram.com/nathanwpylestrangeplanet – which has amassed an incredible 1.2 million followers in just two months! William Morrow will publish STRANGE PLANET on February 14 (Valentine’s Day) 2020. The book will be 144 pages long and will feature 50% new content (other than what’s on the instragram account currently). With dozens of never-before-seen illustrations in addition to old favorites, this book offers a sweet and hilarious look at a distant world not all that unlike our own. STRANGE PLANET has taken off and gone viral and has been getting mentions from Time magazine – http://time.com/5552655/nathan-pyle-strange-planet/ – and Comics Verse https://comicsverse.com/finding-humanity-in-nathan-w-pyles-strange-planet/.
