Katie (a human), Halo (an angel), and Sprocket (a robot) are housemates. Because of course they are.

Although the collection describes itself as "offbeat stories", the majority are semi-philosophical discussions seen from the perspective of the different characters. The robot of course is completely logical; the human somewhat girly and not excessively self-aware about the ludicrous details of human culture; and the angel communicates with all living things and values each one as much as a human.

The clashes of culture are very funny, as well as very clever. You laugh, and then find yourself thinking, "Why DO people do that?"

The artwork is nicely done, although it's black and white and looks ordinary compared to the extremely high artistic value of some graphic novels.

This is a sweet, warm, clever comic that is definitely safe for any kids that want to see why you're giggling so much. It's not often a book is so entertaining and so G-rated.
