Mike Maihack, creator of some fun Supergirl/Batgirl art you might recall, has gifted us a special exclusive from his sci-fi epic, Cleopatra in Space. Hit the jump for the trailer premiere of Cleopatra in Space: Target Practice, as well as a special The Mary Sue add-on.
When a young 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, all while trying to figure out how she’s going to get her homework done, make friends, and avoid detention!
Cleopatra in Space #1 Target Practice, a full length graphic novel by Mike Maihack and published by Graphix (a division of Scholastic), comes out April 29th, 2014 and is available for preorder now!
