Raina Telgemeier, the biggest name in comics today, made a major announcement at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend --- her next project will be a graphic novel called Ghosts, scheduled for release by Scholastic Graphix in 2016.
Ghosts will be Telgemeier's second major work of original fiction following 2012's Drama, in contrast to her autobiographical works Smile and Sisters, and centers on a young girl called Catrina and her family as they move to a new town and attempt to settle in.
You're reading this on the Internet, so there's a good chance that you're already familiar with Mike Maihack, whose super cute, super fun Supergirl/Batgirl fan comics pretty much take over whenever he draws a new one. I've been a fan of those for a long time, and ever since I saw the first one, I've been wondering whether he was going to turn his attention to a full-length story with a similar aesthetic, and with Cleopatra In Space, it looks like that's exactly what he's done.
The full-color OGN is set for release on April 29 from Scholastic, sending the teen Queen of Egypt out into the depths of space for a rollicking all-ages adventure. I can't wait to read it, and fortunately, I don't have to -- check below for a preview of the first 13 pages!
