I really enjoy author/illustrator Ben Hatke’s work, particularly Nobody Likes a Goblin, a picture book, and Little Robot, a graphic novel. He writes and draws things I love.’
Mighty Jack is no different. Jack and his friends are ordinary kids who become extraordinary thanks to some magic and their own bravery and courage. Zita, according to the book, “is fresh from a slew of interplanetary travels and seeking Jack’s help to face a new threat. When the two meet, they’re more than ready for another adventure.”
The book, like the other I have read before, has amazing illustrations and a great story-line. I think you need to read the other books to fully appreciate this one. I found myself often being lost as to who was who and why they were acting they way they were acting. I also didn’t know a number of the characters, which didn’t help, although I would like to see them again.
If the second book and the latest is any indication, this is a great series to read.
Might Jack and Zita the Spacegirl comes out Sept. 3.
A copy of this book was provided by Raincoast Books for an honest review.
The opinions are my own.
