Praise for the Cleopatra in Space series: "Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine -- I'd love to explore the galaxy with her!" -- Raina Telgemeier, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Smile" *"Maihack's characters, both human and nonhuman, are diverse, expressive, and visually distinct." -- "School Library Journal," starred review "Cleo's easygoing confidence makes her a likable... heroine, but the real star of the graphic novel is Maihack's art. The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo's vivacity and flair." -- "Kirkus Reviews" "A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers." -- "Booklist" "Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well." -- "Publishers Weekly"
