ABOUT CLEOPATRA IN SPACE
Zapped away as a teenager from her home era of 52 BC, Cleopatra VII found herself in the middle of a centuries’ long war in the far, far, really far, far future. Now she fights alongside P.Y.R.A.M.I.D. (Pharaoh Yasiro’s Research And Military Initiative of Defense), both human and alienkind’s only hope against the evil Xaius Octavian.
An ancient scroll prophesies that Cleopatra is destined to become the savior of the Nile galaxy; finally freeing its worlds from the tyrannical rule of the technologically advanced Xerx race. With help from her best friend and feline teacher, Khensu, Cleo is learning what it takes to be the great leader she is destined to become while still trying to figure out how she’s ever going to pass military school, make friends, avoid detention, and all of the other important things that come with being a reckless, fifteen-year-old future queen of the universe.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mike Maihack is a graduate from the Columbus College of Art and Design and 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 webcomic 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 Eisner and Harvey award winning Comic Book Tattoo. Currently though, Mike is hard at work bringing his sci-fi epic, Cleopatra in Space, to life and watching not quite as many movies as he used to with his wife, one-year-old son, and two Siamese cats in the far too hot and humid climate that is Tampa, FL.
