A funny, action-packed graphic novel featuring a young Cleopatra -- yes, THAT Cleopatra -- who's transported to the future and learns it's up to her to save the galaxy
When a young Cleopatra (yes, THAT Cleopatra) finds a mysterious tablet that zaps her to the far, REALLY far future, she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy from the tyrannical rule of the evil Xaius Octavian. She enrolls in Yasiro Academy, a high-tech school with classes like algebra, biology, and alien languages (which Cleo could do without), and combat training (which is more Cleo's style). With help from her teacher Khensu, Cleo learns what it takes to be a great leader, all while trying to figure out how she's going to get her homework done, make friends, and avoid detention.

About the Author
David Luis Sanhueza is a graduate from the Animation Program at Northeastern University. David's big dream project is Game-O-Gami, his independent game development studio. His first published title is the critically-acclaimed "Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!" card game. He is currently hard at work developing new games, including "Immortal," "Turtle Panic," and "Final Destinations." In addition to creating games and artwork, David enjoys finding ways to give back to his community... wherever that may be at the time. An American citizen, he has had the honor of living, studying, and teaching in several other countries, including Chile, Brazil, India, Germany, and Japan. Volunteer work often accompanies his travels. He has served with Habitat for Humanity, City Year, Tong-Len, and Volunteer Tibet. David currently lives in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. Mike Maihack is a graduate from the Columbus College of Art and Design. He spends his time drawing pictures of cats, superheroes, space girls or just about anything else he can think of that might involve rayguns or serving tea. He once organized a Christian comic anthology called "Parable," drew an all-ages web comic called "Cow & Buffalo," and was (or still is) a member of many online collectives such as Lunchbox Funnies, Spacedock 7, and Bristolwhip. He has also contributed art and stories to books like "Jim Henson's The Storyteller," "Cow Boy," "Geeks Girls and Secret Identities," and the award winning "Comic Book Tattoo." Currently though, Mike is hard at work bringing his sci-fi epic, "Cleopatra in Space," to life as part of Scholastic's Graphix line of graphic novels... all while watching not quite as many movies as he used to with his wife, son, and two Siamese cats in the far too hot and humid climate that is Tampa, Florida.
