operation space cat is go

Publishers Weekly broke the news yesterday. My series Cleopatra in Space got picked up by Scholastic:

In a two book deal with Scholastic/Graphix, [David] Saylor and editor Cassandra Pelham bought the first two books in Mike Maihack’s new middle-grade graphic novel series, Cleopatra in Space, starring a cheeky teenage Cleopatra—yes, the teenaged Egyptian Queen—who is transported into the future and enrolled in an academy to train her to save the galaxy from an evil threat. Publication for Book #1, Target Practice, is scheduled for 2014. [The deal was negotiated and finalized by Judy Hansen of the Hansen Literary Agency]

These are new stories—or rather one gigantic new story—separate from the webcomic. For those interested in knowing more, I wrote a quick Q&A about the deal over on CiS.
