I have always thought that tardigrades would make great sci-fi creatures. They’re the perfect combination of freaky and adorable. If you don’t know what a tardigrade is, they’re microscopic creatures that look a bit like bears, a bit like pigs, but mostly nothing like anything else you’ve seen before. They can survive in virtually any conditions, including the vacuum of space, and are functionally immortal.
Amy’s life in Kokomo is coming apart. David and Cassie, her first friends when she came to Earth, have broken up. Will she need to choose between them?

Everything is happening at once, and it may be too much for her to handle.
Mark Millar has a unique style of worldbuilding that makes his comics fun and exciting to read. His often adult themes are infused with a sense of childlike wonder that make you feel like anything is possible.

There are times in this life when what you really need is to see classic movie stars fighting Nazis in the Golden Age of Hollywood. During those times, The Fuhrer and the Tramp is there for you. And if, for some reason, that’s NOT what you need—check again. I think you might need that.
This book wasn’t at all what I expected. The term “graphic biography” made me think it would be an account of Elvis’ life, told in graphic novel form, perhaps similarly to the way The Fifth Beatle chronicled the life of Brian Epstein and the rise of the titular band.

The Science! The Elements of Dark Energy graphic novel combines elements of science fact with science fiction in an attempt to base its story in real physics for your readers. In the process, it delivers a fun and interesting sci-fi adventure story.
