A mysterious thief has stolen the ancient sword Cleo recovered in Book One: Target Practice, and she's determined to get it back. But her teachers at Yasiro Academy forbid her from risking her life, so she's stuck at school, trying to adjust to her newfound popularity and responsibility. And when she learns more about the prophecy that names her the savior of the galaxy, she must go on a dangerous journey to find the time tablets that could decide her fate... before they fall into the wrong hands! Now a TV series on NBCUniversal's streaming service, Peacock!

Praise for CLEOPATRA IN SPACE #1: TARGET PRACTICE"Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine -- I'd love to explore the galaxy with her!" --Raina Telgemeier, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of SMILE and DRAMA"Cleo's easygoing confidence makes her a likable . . . heroine, but the real star of the graphic novel is Maihack's art. The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo's vivacity and flair." --KIRKUS REVIEWS"A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers." --BOOKLIST"Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
