Contest Update, Goodreads, and Zita

1. Contest Update: I failed to mention in the last post the length of the raffle! I will close down the comments on Tuesday, August 4th and post the winners names on Wednesday, August 5th. Keep an eye on the blog!

2. Goodreads: More chances to get a free copy of Little Robot! Goodreads is giving away 5 copies over on their website. Click here find out more.

3. Zita!: Oh, Zita the Spacegirl... I hadn't drawn her in awhile so I recently drew up this little model sheet. Gesture is one of the most important tools in visual storytelling, and little character sheets like this are great for nailing down just how a character moves and emotes (and how they crash into things):

That's all for now!

My 6 year old daughter just devoured book 2 and 3 in 24 hours. Is there hope for a book 4?

Ben Hatke said...

There is hope!

But it won't be soon. Not for at least a couple of years.


I will probably do a short story or two in that time, though.

I love Zita the Spacegirl she is awesome!! #Keepthebookscoming!

Gagan said...

Ben, my 4 yr old daughter (and I) look forward to reading more Zita books as well. Thanks for the books.

We went through the 3 of them in the last 2 weeks and she is actually trying to read because of the books.

Book 3 caused outburst - "I hate the dungeon master", "he is stupid"!

Keep them coming. Thanks for the great work. We really need need more girl heroes!

Jessica said...

Oh no!! A couple of years?? My 10 year old son can't wait that long! :(

Dana said...

My 6-year-old has read Zita's trilogy end to end maybe 8 times in four months, sometimes putting 3 down and immediately picking up 1 again. She needs to know as soon as possible why Piper needs Zita's help. She just read the last page of Return of Zita, and is dying to know what's next. So am I! Help! Please don't leave us dangling.

Ben Hatke said...

Yikes! I'm doing my best!

The next two graphic novels do touch slightly on Zita's story (the Zitaverse). The fort one is called Mighty Jack. It doesn't answe the question of what happens after book 3 of Zita (and might even raise more questions) but it's a good story, I think. I hope.

But I am writing and working as fast as I can these days.

Dying to read the fourth. Ahem, my daughter is dying to read the fourth book as well. Thanks for making a series that focuses on heroism rather than princesses;)

I'm hoping for a book 4 soon!

I've been trying to draw them out, but we just started book 3. My daughter (7) just took books 1&2 to summer school to read to the other kids
