Booklist - 08/01/2012 *Starred Review* First things first: Hatke draws awesome aliens. Lots and lots of them. Wee hairy ones and giant blobby ones, many-eyed ones and multiple-limbed ones, giant cat ones and head-inside-another-head ones. They’re all over the place in this smart and sassy interstellar adventure that picks up where Zita the Spacegirl (2011) left off. How do you follow up saving an entire planet from destruction by asteroid? For Zita, you go on a cosmic victory tour, somewhat reluctantly, to meet your adoring throngs of new fans. For Hatke, you whip up a story that digs into the high price of fame without sacrificing a drop of the fun, funny, and far-out charm that made his first graphic novel such a smash. After a robotic imposter takes Zita’s place and promises to save another planet from doom, Zita hijacks a spaceship (and quickly gets libeled as Crimegirl by hysterical galactic media) and eludes the authorities while making a new friend and mentor en route to a cosmic clash between a titanic planetary guardian and vicious heart-shaped space meanies. Zita is still looking for a way home, but it looks like she has got plenty more adventuring to plow through before she finds one. Top-flight space capering brimming with heart and heroism. - Copyright 2012 Booklist.
