Zita the Spacegirl, the Old and the New

Here's another recent commission piece. This one for a girl named Emma who loves to read. I went ahead and added the "Read" text to this one to make it into another mini library poster:

And now something from the vault. Long, long ago I made some black and white newspaper style Zita strips. Most of them have been lost, but I recently found this one lurking on old internet archives. It's one of a series of three wherein Zita sneaks into the Robot Rally, using a cardboard box as a disguise, and uncovers a sinister plot. I don't usually like to repost my older works, but this one holds up pretty well, I think.

Perhaps more interesting still, here's an old image from the Zita website. You can see how the character has changed:

Does the gray crab in the corner have a mushroom growing out of it's back???

...perhaps.

I love the mini-poster!
By the way, my daughter Lucy has been asking me literally every day if I know when Zita 3 will be coming out. She's been threatening to write you herself to ask you to hurry--we had to have a little talk about the way publishing works. :)

Oh dear. I'm going to make a general announcement about this soon, but it's looking like the "big day" will be in ...May of 2014.

I?M SO SORRY!!

Hi Ben! My daughter Emma (recipient of the commission above) wants to know if the mini-poster is available to purchase, as she wants to give one to both her school library and our local public library.

Let me know- thanks! We've already pre-ordered Zita 3 :)
