Worlds Collide

Today is the big day for Legends of Zita the Spacegirl! Today the book is released! I hope you love it!

One of the things about making books for large publishers that took some getting used to is the tremendous long wait between the time you turn in your book and the day that it actually becomes available to the readers. In the case of these graphic novels that wait is a full year. This is nothing at all like the instant gratification you get from posting comics on the web.

When I turned in Legends last September I was just chomping at the bit to share it with people. I still am! But now that the story is heading out into the big world most of my storytelling brain is wrapped up in the third Zita story -and I find myself at least equally as eager to share this new story with you.

So here is a panel from Zita 3, that features a cameo appearance by the Little Robot (and his girlfriend!):

And here, for those interested, are some nice reviews and things about Legends:

I got my copy this morning and read it right away. I liked it even better than the first volume!

Hooray! That's what I like to hear. It means I'm (hopefully) improving at telling stories.

Wait 'till you read the third book!

Hey, congrats -- I just finished "Legends of Zita the Space Girl" and it's SO darn good. Can't wait for Book 3!

Our copy arrived yesterday and I read it with all the little kids gathered around. Excellent, Ben! Great story and the art is even better than the first. Ready for #3.
