I know a lot of you have been waiting for this news: CLEOPATRA IN SPACE #1: TARGET PRACTICE is now available in eBook format! Below are links for all the available devices. Would be awesome to see Cleo be a bestseller for any one of them.
I’m excited to finally release the soundtrack for Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice: a somewhat lyrical, mostly musical companion to the graphic novel. All of its songs helped inspire the creation of Target Practice, hopefully give a touch more emotional resonance to the story, and occasionally foreshadow events of things to come. Enjoy!
My first graphic novel, Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice, is out today! At the most, I hope everyone buys a copy. At the very least, I hope everyone shares the book’s release with others! Target Practice is only the first part in a proposed series long epic, and I really want the chance to tell the whole story. That will only happen if this first book is successful.
Here are a few places Target Practice is available:

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.
