Life Lessons from a UFO Catcher: An Autobiographical Manga

Graphic novel, manga, young adult, memoir
Price: $20.00

The tale of a man drifting through life, capturing cute plushies and important life lessons along the way.

Kenny Loui is a self-proclaimed "UFO catcher," whose life goal is to "liberate" all plushies trapped in captivity inside arcade claw machines. In his UFO-catching journey, Kenny encounters a concerned guardian spirit who tries—but fails—to keep him out of trouble, a beautiful stranger with an affinity for dart games but is always missing her mark, a wise arcade owner who never hesitates to share his sage advice, and a rival who foils Kenny's crane game victories every chance he gets.

This collection of short stories chronicles Kenny’s experiences playing arcade UFO catchers, rescuing cute and cuddly plushies while capturing important life lessons along the way ... just like Aesop's Fables, but with a modern-day twist (and an awesome 80's soundtrack)! Based on a true story.
