"In the second installment of the Tune series, our hapless hero, Andy Go, is settling into life in an alien zoo. Bein a zoo creature isn't so bad--his keepers serve him piping hot pho, his TV has a million channels, and his house on Earth has been recreated in exacting detail, right down to the Playboys he keeps under his mattress. But his dream job starts to look like a nightmare when he realizes he won't be getting his promised weekend visits to Earth, and his contract isn't for one year...but a lifetime."--Cover, p.[4]… (more)

Humor, pathos, and pan-dimensionality in the same package, the Tune story continues to be a fun read for all ages. Full review. ( )

Much more entertaining than the first, but a bit too crude for my taste...Too many poop jokes for me. :p Anyway, I did find Dash very fun with her childlike wonderment. I guess I'm stuck waiting for the third because these books never get to the meat of the story. ( )

Tune: Still Life by Derek Kirk Kim is the second of the graphic novel series. Andy has come to realize he's stuck in this facsimile of his home and he won't even get days off for good behavior.

To cheer him up, and probably to start a breeding program, his alien zookeepers have found his girlfriend. Except, she's not his girlfriend. She's an alternate version from another dimension.

These Tune books feel like the fan service / sex comedy animes that I tend to avoid. There's a lot of embarrassment humor through awkward situations, gender tropes, and other things that make me want to pull my hair out.

Andy does manage to escape at the end. I'm a little curious to see if there will be any exploration of the alien's world but I'm not curious enough to actively seek out volume 3. ( )
