Comments for The Return of Zita the Spacegirl

The Return of Zita the Spacegirl: 08/27/14

cover artThe Return of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke concludes the Zita trilogy of graphic novels. Zita is imprisoned for crimes she did while trying to save her friends. Now she needs to figure out how to either survive or escape because rescue or a pardon doesn't seem likely.

One of Zita's best assets (beyond her bravery) is her ability to bring people together. Rather than be afraid or disgusted by her dungeon cohorts, she enlists them in a plan of escape. Some of their ideas are wacky and some are brilliant. Separately they'd never be able to escape, or feel like it was even an option. Together, though, they just might be an unstoppable team.

The conclusion to the Zita trilogy is action packed and satisfying. Lose ends get tied up. Old characters return. Questions are answered. And to the ever hopeful, there's a little bit of an opening for a fourth book should Ben Hatke ever feel like sending Zita on a new adventure.
