Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Zita’s life took a cosmic left turn in the blink of an eye.
When her best friend is abducted by an alien doomsday cult, Zita leaps to the rescue and finds herself a stranger on a strange planet. Humanoid chickens and neurotic robots are shocking enough as new experiences go, but Zita is even more surprised to find herself taking on the role of intergalactic hero. Before long, aliens in all shapes and sizes don’t even phase her. Neither do ancient prophecies, doomed planets, or even a friendly con man who takes a mysterious interest in Zita’s quest.
Legends of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Zita’s exploits from her first adventure have made her an intergalactic megastar! But she’s about to find out that fame doesn’t come without a price. And who can you trust when your true self is being eclipsed by your public persona, and you’ve got a robot doppelganger wreaking havoc . . . while wearing your face?
Still, if anyone can find their way through this intractible mess of mistaken identity and alien invaders, it’s the indomitable Zita, in Legends of Zita the Spacegirl.
The Return of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Zita the Spacegirl has saved planets, battled monsters, and wrestled with interplanetary fame. But she faces her biggest challenge yet in the third and final installment of the Zita adventures. Wrongfully imprisoned on a penitentiary planet, Zita has to plot the galaxy’s greatest jailbreak before the evil prison warden can execute his plan of interstellar domination!
Zita the Spacegirl is a loveable character, quick to make friends and loyal. She unwittingly becomes a hero, but she just wants to get back home to Earth. It’s a fun universe of inventive aliens and robots with fun personalities. The artwork is fantastic, creative and vibrant. And each story is exciting, poignant, and funny.
Full of adventure, unique aliens, mystery, and humor – I highly recommend this graphic novel trilogy to science fiction fans of all ages. Each graphic novel is somewhat a standalone story, yet best read in order. I hope to see more of Zita in the future.
