For more info:
Two years in the making… Astronaut Academy: Re-Entry, my latest full-length graphic novel, is on store shelves now!
WATCH THE BOOK TRAILER:
Popular pop culture blog io9.com says “…it’s a delightful and often clever voyage that will remind you of middle school even when it’s completely packed with robots and panda bears.”
Astronaut Academy: Re-Entry was a labor of love, and I couldn’t have made it without the support of all my friends and family! I know how lucky I am, and hope that I can continue to keep making offbeat comics for kids for years to come!
