Description

After Erin Song's parents ban her from using her
phone, TV, Internet and all her screens, she soon discovers mysterious, strange
creatures and must foil their plot to take over Earth in this hilarious sci-fi
graphic novel for tweens.

Erin Song lives in
a digital world. Everyone has a phone, a tablet, a computer-more screens than
you can count. Even with a world of information at her fingertips, Erin can't
figure out the secret to popularity at her clique-y junior high school. So when
uber-popular Wendy asks for help cheating on a test, Erin jumps at the
opportunity. This could be her big break! Unfortunately, she gets caught, and
her parents ban her from all her devices. Suddenly, Erin Song is the only girl
in the world who's not allowed to look at a
screen.

And that's when Erin notices
something funny: small, furry aliens making humans disappear with a weird device
Erin's never seen before. No one else notices them, though-except Erin's
grandmother and two old men who run the local library. They've discovered that
the aliens are using screens to control the human race, tricking them into
thinking they aren't really there-and that anyone who's been abducted never
existed.

Now it's up to Erin and her
grandmother to save the day! But without technology on their side, do they stand
a chance?

About Mat Heagerty

Mat Heagerty is a chipper bartender and comic book writer who currently has multiple projects in the works. The height of his internet popularity was being retweeted once by MC Hammer. Mat lives in the Bay Area where he happily orbits around his daughter, wife, and black lab. If you haven't lost your internet privileges, you can find him on twitter @matheagerty or on his website matheagerty.com Tintin Pantoja has previously illustrated graphic novels such as WHO IS AC? (written by Hope Larson) and the MANGA MATH MYSTERIES series (by Melinda Theilbar). She enjoys journaling, fountain pens, and fine chocolates. UNPLUGGED & UNPOPULAR is her first all-digitally-inked book, which means she'd be the first one brainwashed! She also loves bad puns and window shopping. Tintin lives in Manila, Philippines with four dogs and 1/2 cat. Mike Amante is a freelance children's book illustrator who has worked on the SHAHNAMEH FOR KIDS series and on OMF Literature books such as DYARAN! ANG KAMBAL NA HEBIGAT! (TADA! THE HEAVYWEIGHT TWINS!) and ANG ALLOWANCE NA HINDI BITIN. He loves to drink tea, listen to lo-fi music and read comics. He thinks aliens are cool so he made a bunch of minicomics about them. Mike currently resides in Laguna, Philippines along with his family and their overly energetic poodle.
