This Spoils the Ending
In the Comic Book In the TV Show
   Asta eventually feels there is something unusual about Harry and tells her father. Her father (a shaman) talks to Asta in her dreams to say that Harry is an alien and being chased. Asta's father is not a shaman and does not appear in Asta's dreams. Dan works at a diner.
   Asta does not see the ship crashing. Harry crashed three years prior to the events in the comic. Asta, pregnant at 16, married and gave up her baby. She left her abusive husband the same day Harry crashed four months ago; she sees his burning spaceship flying through the sky.
   Harry is not mocked by the locals and is better versed in the culture prior to being the town doctor. Harry quickly learns to like and respect the local residents of the town. Harry uses his cell phone to look up slang terms he hears (and is called by) such as douche-bag and taint. He is repulsed by the terms. Harry has a low opinion of humans in general.
   Asta's ex is not abusive after she leaves him. Harry does not appear to be stronger than humans. Asta is confronted by her ex-husband; he starts beating her. Harry comes to her rescue, beating him up severely by punching through a house wall and choking him. Asta stops Harry from killing her ex.
   Harry goes to the funeral and senses that no one present could be the murderer. He is unable to get close to the group of mourners due to the sorrow he can feel coming from them. Harry goes to the old doctor's funeral at the cemetery where he opens the coffin and looks at the body.
