Description

In the goofy space adventures of a little girl called Sardine, encounters aren't always friendly: weird creatures, cosmic squids, masters of the universe, talking clouds, and evil beings abound. In this volume of seven stories, Supermuscleman, the chief executive dictator of the universe, is on a mission to make all the galaxy's kids behave. Sardine must enlist the help of her cousin Lou and her pirate uncle, the gruff Captain Yellow Shoulder, to outwit him and his evil plans.

Prolific, inventive, and versatile beyond common sense, the two shared a Paris studio from 1995 and 1999, where stories--including this one--grew like ragweed. Taking turns writing scripts and drawing pictures, Joann and Emmanuel have collaborated on a number of prize-winning graphic novels, such as "The Professor's Daughter," the "Black Olives" series, and now "Sardine in Outer Space." Working solo, Sfar is the author of the popular "Little Vampire" and "Vampire Loves" series, as well as the bestselling "The Rabbi's Cat." As for Guibert, his many works for readers young and old include "Alan's War," an extraordinary biography of his late from Alan Cope, an American WWII veteran.

Review quote

“. . . there is a distinct lack of chores in space, which makes for a free-wheeling ride peppered with as much grisly monster-filleting action and bodily fluid humor as a young reader could want.”—"Booklist"   “With nonstop action, humor geared to multiple levels of cultural awareness and the promise of more episodes to come, even readers stubbornly resisting the trendy format’s lure with find that, as Supermuscleman sneers shortly before gorily blasting his own foot, ‘Resistance is futile.’”—"Kirkus Reviews", Starred Review   “Punky heroes, interplanetary action and unpredictable bouts of silliness characterize these hyperbolic color comics. . . . the pirate humor and gothic panels—abundant with Jolly Rogers, drippy slime and creepy-crawly creatures—provide surprises in every space vignette.”—"Publishers Weekly"
