The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza

First of series by James Kochalka. New York, NY: First Second, 2014

The Glorkian Warrior (a tall three-eyed alien short on brains) receives a mysterious call to deliver a very weird pizza (clams and peanut butter). With his trusty talking backpack and sentient weapons system, he sets out to deliver the order and finds all sorts of trouble. Kochalka sets an ambling story-telling pace allowing him to have wordplay, puns, and gags galore.
