It’s a different New York City than the one we’re used to, where political correctness now includes our brothers from the stars, dating a 20 foot tall hideous alien queen is socially acceptable, and Jesus is the star player of the Yankees. As web comic formulas go, Alien Loves Predator is pretty standard.I can't believe I'm impressed by what should be a crummy clichéd joke, but it works because of all the panels before it. In part, it's played off as "anything goes in this town."
