"Gabby and Gator"

Just recently, I've come across this very charming graphic novel/picture book by illustrator and animator James Burks, who has been in the animation industry for yoinks working on various movies and shows from Warner Bros. to Disney to Nickelodeon.

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 ;)

For more info, you can check out James's main page and his various blog posts reg; the development of this book!
