Interview: Ben Hatke, author of Zita the Spacegirl

Feb 1, 2011

After a successful appearance in Kazu Kibuishi’sFlight anthology, Ben Hatke breaks out on his own with the winning Zita the Spagegirl, an action-packed romp starring a very precocious little girl lost around the stars and trying to find her way home. Zita embarks on a madcap adventure to rescue her friend Joseph, avoid the creepy aliens who want to harm her, and get back to earth. It’s a tall order, and there’s a lot of fun to be had (mostly for the reader) along the way. We talked with Hatke about the new book and how much fun it was for him to work on it.
