A funny, action-packed graphic novel featuring fifteen-year-old Cleopatra - yes, THAT Cleopatra - who's transported to the future and learns it's up to her to save the galaxy!

When fifteen-year-old Cleopatra (yes, THAT Cleopatra) finds a mysterious tablet that zaps her to the far, REALLY far future, she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy from the tyrannical rule of the evil Xaius Octavian.

She enrolls in Yasiro Academy, a high-tech school with classes like algebra, biology, and alien languages (which Cleo could do without), and combat training (which is more Cleo's style). With help from her teacher Khensu, Cleo learns what it takes to be a great leader, while trying to figure out how she's going to get her homework done, make friends, avoid detention, and everything else that comes with being the future queen of the universe!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice:"Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine - I'd love to explore the galaxy with her!" -Raina Telgemeier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Smile and Drama"Maihack's debut graphic novel sets the stage for what looks to be a series of Star Trek-style space adventures punctuated with far-future high school drama. Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero." -Publishers Weekly"Cleo's mentor, a historian cat, is one of the best sidekicks around, and the imaginative content . . . and flow of Maihack's panels is a delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers." -Booklist"Cleo's novel surroundings - which include talking cats, ray guns and even a flying sphinx - feel fresh and immediate." -Kirkus"The origin narrative slows some of the action, but readers will still eagerly anticipate book two of this promising series." -Booklist"The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo's vivacity and flair. Moreover, Cleo's novel surroundings-which include talking cats, ray guns and even a flying sphinx-feel fresh and immediate to readers thanks to Maihack's character designs and backgrounds, which manage to be winsome without being cloying." -Kirkus"Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well." -Publishers Weekly
