“How do you follow up saving an entire planet from destruction by asteroid? For Zita, you go on a cosmic victory tour, somewhat reluctantly, to meet your adoring throngs of new fans. For Hatke, you whip up a story that digs into the high price of fame without sacrificing a drop of the fun, funny, and far-out charm that made his first graphic novel such a smash...Top-flight space capering brimming with heart and heroism.” - Booklist, starred review
