This is just silly, but it has a little edge of surrealism that I like. I thought it was hilarious, actually. But the story itself, on the bare surface, is typical YA alienation, though not dark and brutal, but light and sorta Beavis and Butthead. Sorta.
Moonhead is an outsider. Hangs with a nerd girl. Bullied by popular kids. But the reason he is bullied is because he has a moon head… which his parents don't find strange because they do, too. The precise drawing of buildings makes me think he has been influenced by Chris Ware. Moonhead invents a kind of guitar and gets involved (or thinks he gets involved?) with a ghost friend who helps him break on through to the other side into popularity by performing at the high school talent show, dude! And there's some ghostbuster kinda slime that figures in. Maybe it's just juvenile silly, mainly, but it made me smile.
The goofiness of the story and the increasing surrealistic aspects of it are attractively and well done. It's not Charles Burns, but it has a little Burns in it, maybe, as it turns stranger. I mean, Burns begins with normal high school students in Black Hole and then put them through a night mare of bizarreness. This story in Moonhead is not that original at all on the surface; it's in the weird silly details that it is crazy, possibly drug-induced. I think alt high school kids would dig it.
Oh, and that moon head design reminds me of the moon face in Georges Méliès' trippy 1902 A Trip to the Moon (that is also featured in that Martin Scorsese film Hugo). That aspect of the drawing and conception (and the precisely designed architecture ala Ware) makes me think this is a cut above the usual Beavis stuff.
