First Second has provided ROBOT 6 with an exclusive first look at the cover for the third volume The Glorkian Warrior, James Kochalka's celebrated sci-fi series for young readers.
As you're likely aware by now, The Glorkian Warrior is both a graphic novel series and a video-game collaboration between Kochalka and indie studio Pixeljam, both starring an alien adventure who wears a laser backpack. In, the third volume, The Glorkian Warrior and the Mustache of Destiny, the hapless hero has a little company. Here's the official description:
In volume 3 of James Kochalka's off-kilter science fiction series for young readers, the eponymous hapless space adventurer is joined by three horribly annoying little kids. Everything is terrible, and nothing is okay.
Well, that's not entirely true. There's a really great mustache. And a valiant cup of coffee. And a truly dastardly villain. And the Glorkian SuperGrandma even makes an appearance!
With gorgeous, lively illustrations and super silly humor, this third volume in the Glorkian Warrior series is jam-packed with extra-gross gross-out humor and ludicrously bad decisions.
Obviously, it's the best yet.
The second volume in the series, The Glorkian Warrior Eats Adventure Pie, was released last month. The Glorkian Warrior and the Mustache of Destiny is scheduled to arrive in March 2016.
