Zita the Spacegirl
It's the release day for Zita the Spacegirl! Ben Hatke, the author, was a neighbor of ours when I worked out in Virginia and I got the chance to read the proofs for this wonderful comic book! It's fun and imaginative and both completely suitable for younger audiences and a joy for older ones.
Zita the Spacegirl is the story of an inquisitive young girl from Earth. One day she is out walking with a friend of hers and they come across a mysterious space object that sucks in her friend. Zita must choose to follow her friend through the portal and search for him across an alien planet, only to find that their purpose there is far bigger than either could have imagined.
