When this Pix Plus campaign began more than one person asked if they’d see Zita the Spacegirl, star of three graphic novels by Ben Hatke, in the series…and of course I was going to include Zita; I’d be a fool not to! And not just because the Zita graphic novels are great, and Ben combines adventure, wonder, and heart in his stories, but because there’s no question that Zita and Pix would have an awesome team-up adventure.
At a convention a couple years back a little girl walked by dressed as Zita. Chris Giarrusso, sitting next to me, pointed her out. When we called out “Hey, Zita!” the girl and her mom were so excited we recognized her…it was a convention highlight. Zita is pretty popular as a costume; that’s pretty rad.
