MG with midnight movie charm.

I think the world of Nathan Hale, but didn't know what to expect from this beyond 'ok, he wants an excuse to draw weird monsters'. And that about sums it up, but with all of Hale's charm, humor, and inventiveness. The story clicked for me in a weird way when I realized it's not meant to be taken seriously, think of it more like an 80's B-movie than serious SF. Some of the images can be disturbing, but provided kids have a strong stomach for weirdness, I think it's good for most ages (older as well as younger)
