Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl

Ben Hatke

(First Second Books)

Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl is a thrilling galactic graphic novel.
Evil giants and screeds are determined to seize Earth for their own nefarious purposes. Our heroes are conflicted about how to deal with the threat.  In both their own ways, they feel somewhat responsible for the dilemma that confronts them. As the opposition forces gather momentum, it seems impossible for Zita and Jack to prevail.
As the action culminates in an extraordinary and unforgettable battle, they find that unity rather than force will ultimately save the day. Ben Hatke’s adventure is a wonderful and exciting page-turner.  It seamlessly blends dragons, giants, robots, and portals to other worlds, creating instant appeal for fans of graphic novel genres such as fantasy, fairy tales, or science fiction. The artistic style that is vibrant, the illustrations both alluring and cinematic, jumping to life off their pages. Special mention needs to made of Hatke’s collaborators – book designers and illustration colourists Alex Campbell and Hilary Sycamore.
Readers wanting more of Zita and many of the wide cast of characters will want to check out Zita the Spacegirl, also available in the Bookwagon on-line bookstore.
