Ah, Zita. How I missed you! Remember how much I raved about the first graphic novel in this series? Well, prepare yourself my friends. I plan to do just as much gushing about Legends of Zita the Spacegirl. Things could get a little fanatic.

First off, reading this second book only solidifies my love for Ben Hatke's illustrations! His characters are just so bright and vivid! Of course all of our friends from the first book are back. Strong Strong with his lovable demeanor, Piper with his schemes and such, every character was just as wonderful as the first time I met them. Plus, there were new characters to meet! I giggled my way through the argument between an alien with multiple arms and an alien with multiple eyes over who was more equipped to pilot a spacecraft. Each and every panel is so packed with gorgeous visuals! This book is definitely a treat for the eyes, and I loved it.

I also loved that Zita was back! I've been waiting to get my hands on this second installment, to see where her adventures would take her next. This time Zita was dealing with new issues. Fame versus friendship. Responsibility to her fans. What's a girl to do when she's suddenly an intergalactic superstar? I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Zita is an amazing role model for young readers. Her bravery, her kindness, everything about her is completely addictive. I'm not even the target audience, and yet I'm in love.

Insert a happy sigh right here, because that's how I feel about this story. I have to give so much love to Ben Hatke for sharing Zita with us. The ending promises more amazing adventures around the corner. Now I just need to find the third book so I can find out what happens next! ( )

Reading this series accidentally out of order (1, 3, 2) wasn't that bad. This one (2!) filled in the blanks (kind of) about Madrigal (Piper's ex?) and Pizzicato (a.k.a. Mouse) and Glissando.

In Legends of Zita the Spacegirl, Zita is famous for saving Scriptorius, and Piper is showing her off and having her sign autographs. But a recalled "imprint-o-tron" sees a poster of Zita and tries to take her place; Zita is left behind, deemed a criminal; she and Mouse meet Madrigal, who gives Zita her own spaceship ("Shippy") so Zita can get back to her friends and oust her doppelganger - and save Lumponia from the Star Hearts. Zita and fake-Zita do save Lumponia, and then Zita rushes off again in Shippy to save Mouse - but they are about to be captured. To be continued... (in The Return of Zita the Spacegirl). ( )
