It's a very sweet, surreal story about a hungry alligator and an environmentalist girl who both have something in common:
They're outcast "freaks" who simply want a friend.
And seeing how these two manage to cement a firm friendship despite their differences, with a funtastic graphic design to boot, makes this all the more charming. Well worth picking up if one is bored with Marvel Comics or Manga imports ;)
