"Maihack's debut graphic novel sets the stage for what looks to be a series of Star Trek-style space adventures punctuated with far-future high school drama. Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero." -Publishers Weekly
"Cleo's mentor, a historian cat, is one of the best sidekicks around, and the imaginative content . . . and flow of Maihack's panels is a delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers." -Booklist
"Cleo's novel surroundings - which include talking cats, ray guns and even a flying sphinx - feel fresh and immediate." -Kirkus

Review from a 10 YEAR OLD avid reader of graphic novels:
I like this book because it was really good and interesting and i think it was an amazing book to read.There was lots of action and fighting and time travel. I didn't pick 5 stars because there were some parts in the book were i couldn't understand parts and some parts were weird which could be kinda interesting. So i really really LIKE the book. You should read it one day and find out how amazing this book really is. CLEOPATRA in space is one of my favorite books in the world. I want to be helpful to whoever is thinking about buying this book.And here is one option YES.If you read this book already please be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with other people so you can share how wonderful of a book this is. So take your time and think right now if you are interested in getting this book. Hope you like it or even love it. Bye.
The story touches on 1) Cleopatra being a heroine/savior, 2) girls liking boys and vice versa 3) the heroine's preference for combat training versus high school subjects like algebra.
Unfortunately, I didn't find the wholesomeness I would expect from a book that Scholastic carries. But there also wasn't anything outwardly offensive.
Since I bought it, I will send this one to my 8 year-old granddaughter and, if she likes it, I'll look into getting Book Two which is a continuation of the story. This comic might be good for encouraging reading -- some pages have only a few words and some more advanced words are introduced, providing opportunities for "aside learning" if an older person is present in the reading.
A last thought on the art - the colors are muted tones - a bit dark.
The artwork is beautiful, and the cinematic flair brings the action to life. Cleo is a strong, fearless heroine that girls can look up to.
If you are interested in Egypt at all, this is the book for you. it is fun, exciting and I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
Get every book in this series, please make lots more Mike!
Another thing I like about CIS is that Cleopatra herself is interesting and well-written enough to appeal to most young (8-12) readers. That's a bonus for me because I am always looking to put books in students hands in order to encourage reading.
That said, I look forward to the first Cleopatra in Space movie.
I'm looking forward to the next installment.
It's all too rare to find exciting, imaginative, non-superhero, family-friendly comics. Oh, they're out there of course, but certainly not enough of them. Eagerly looking forward to the next volume!
