MISSILE MOUSE is the creation of Jake Parker, who’s done work in animation, picture books, and comics/graphic novels. He’s an illustrating/cartooning powerhouse, working in different styles and genres…it’s impressive, and each thing he does looks better than the last. MISSILE MOUSE is a graphic novel series he did for Scholastic/Graphix about a space-faring mouse with a jetpack…what else do you need to know? There’s intergalactic strife and aliens and betrayal and stuff, but in the end it’s a cool action adventure story, which isn’t dissimilar from PIX (albeit PIX is what I call a “suburban adventure story”), so why not team these two up in an awesome action shot?! Exactly.
