    Why can’t there just be an infinite number of Zita and Jack books?

    I was lucky enough to win a copy of this to enjoy with my son. It was nice to pick up where the last book left off, but if someone was starting in at just this book, the beginning would feel like walking into the middle of a conversation. Illustrations continue to impress and reach the targeted audience and the story remains unique ang engaging. Can't wait to see the full-color version Overall a solid 4 star book

    Obvious story line, but slightly unusual ending. While closed the story, it is left open for more adventures.

    A little time has passed since Jack, Lilly, and Maddy had their adventures overthrowing the ogre king, and Zita & Joseph, Madrigal & Piper have been back on Earth for a while since their adventures in space. Regular life is a little hard after you’d adventured elsewhere.

Regular life is a little hard after you’d adventured elsewhere. When giants threaten to break the door between the inbetween and invade Earth, Jack, Lilly, Maddy, Zita, Joseph, and the rest of the gang have to find a way to stop the invasion and save Earth. It was so nice to be adventuring with Jack, Lilly, Zita, Joseph, and gang again. They manage to visit places and see creatures on their adventure trying to stop the invasion that harken back to both of their past series of adventures. I like that they have to work out how to work together. It seems very natural when you’ve been two separate teams that it would take a little work to get into a flow with more people and for everyone to find how they fit in. Hatke’s illustrations are amazing as always. He’s added a little bit of a touch of Norse mythology into this story, while also having shades of various Jack & giant fairy tales. Not that it feels like a rewrite of someone else’s story. This is all Hatke’s own. And I like that the characters work to make every effort to solve things peacefully. There’s enough opening at the end that it looks like Jack and Zita and friends could have more adventures either together or separate. And I really hope there are more. Hatke’s books are so wonderful for both avid readers and getting reluctant readers reading, and they appeal to a wide age range. Highly recommended to just about any reader. Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. Violence is threatened, but no fatalities and the worst injuries are suffered by a skeleton-like creature that seems able to regenerate. I received an ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    For fans of Ben Hatke's two graphic novel series, Zita the Spacegirl and Mighty Jack, the second Mighty Jack graphic novel left us with a mighty cliffhanger that had us clamoring for more.

Throughout the story, character learn that they need to come together like never before, in ways they did not feel possible in order to have any chance to save our planet. This is a really great addition to the series. 4.5 stars!

    I received an advance reader copy from Netgalley. I have been waiting for this ARC ever since Ben Hatke posted a preview. I was not disappointed!! New adventure, old friends. My only complaint is that it went too fast. I wasn’t ready to leave these characters. I really hope this is the beginning of Jack and Zita’s adventures. For now, I think I’ll console myself and reread the series from the beginning.

    I thought it was impossible for me to love Ben Hatke’s Mighty Jack series of graphic novels after his first two books were such smashing successes but here we are: “Mighty Jack And Zita The Spacegirl” is probably the best volume yet!

By combining his two largest franchises in one epic crossover comic, Hatke has brought all his toys to his biggest sandbox yet, unleashing his imagination like never before. Multiple dimensions can’t contain his boundless creativity! Combining dragons and giants with robots and spacecraft, there’s really nothing else quite like “Mighty Jack And Zita The Spacegirl” in the world of YA graphic novels. Now, if you haven’t read the two previous Mighty Jack books or the Zita The Spacegirl trilogy, “Mighty Jack And Zita The Spacegirl” is not the place to start. This book is jam-packed full of continuity and new readers are gonna be completely lost; longtime fans, though, will be treated to Hatke’s finest work. Over the years, Hatke has developed a much looser, sketchier style, almost sloppy and even amateurish at times, but there’s a lively confidence to his pages now that is tremendously energizing. In this book, he’s truly mastered the wide angle establishing shot, letting his lush worlds spread across two pages. I was also struck by how distinctive his character designs are; often Jack and Zita and their cohorts are tiny, basic shapes amongst soaring alien vistas but their unique coloring and silhouettes make them easily identifiable. The crux of the comic is the heroic friends battling a clan of giants trying to invade Earth, but it’s the fun interplay of the characters (with a dash of adolescent drama) that really drives the story. Despite such a large cast, every character gets their moment to shine, leading up to a rather unconventional ending that, in typical Mighty Jack fashion, comes as sort of an unexpected twist. From the first panel to the last, “Mighty Jack And Zita The Spacegirl” is Ben Hatke working at the height of his powers. It’s not often that a comic has the ability to give me shivers but there’s one double-page spread of Hatke’s heroes gathered together to take on their formidable opponent that totally gave me goosebumps. “Mighty Jack And Zita The Spacegirl” is the culmination of years and years of top notch work and it’s a showstopper. I have no doubt that Hatke has more wild stories to tell, maybe involving Jack or Zita or maybe both, especially because he seems to have really hit his creative stride. This graphic novel is an unmitigated triumph.

    A little anti climatic at the final battle scene, but it did end on a well-done note that left things open for future books (we can only hope!). I wish there had been an epilogue or, at least, more sketches and insight from the artist on this final volume. I like the drawing style but I do wish there was more detail on the faces. Having said that, the sketchiness has a very original feel about it.

    Having had some cameos of characters from the Zita cast in the earlier Mighty Jack books, Hatke now goes into full-on crossover mode for his two big series. It's jam-packed with adventure and references to all the previous books. I probably won't remember it for long since it is mostly just a bunch of people running around, but I enjoyed it in the moment.

    The whole adventure was wonderful & had lots of excellent twists and turns, but my favorite part right now is the conflict resolution at the climax--no spoilers here--I had to do a double take when I turned the page & flipped back and forth a couple times to make sure I wasn't missing anything, and yes, it does resolve the way it does... and it's a really, really great moment. I also really appreciated Jack's final decision and the quiet, reassuring epilogue.

Y'all should read this, but maybe after reading Zita & Mighty Jack, which are both fantastic arcs themselves. MJ&ZtSG is especially great if you like adventures & quests, coming of age, sci-fi & fantasy settings, friendship & teamwork, or goblins. (the goblins are my favorite. Goblins good.) Hatke's art and pacing are top notch, and you can stare at all of his background creatures forever.

    I loved this! The worlds of Zita and Jack just came together so seamlessly. All of my favourite characters came together to save Earth, getting stuck on other worlds along the way. Cameo appearances from minor characters made me laugh and Ben returned us briefly to some of Zita's worlds. The ending was great too, leaving it open for another adventure. I certainly hope we get to see these characters again.

    A huge thanks to Netgalley for an ARC of this book! Oh, I cannot wait to show the published copy to the students at school! I was so excited to hear that Zita and Jack would share a book. Ben Hatke is by far my favorite graphic artist and he is hugely popular at my school, even with reluctant readers. They will be fighting over this one.

    Jack, Zita, Lilly and the gang must save earth from the powerful giants. The story was action-packed, the characters had great development, and the ending left me a little sad. If this is the final book, I am satisfied with the ending. However, I could probably read about all their adventures for a long time.

I loved the friendship between Zita and Jack and I loved Lilly’s development throughout the book! The humor as always had me laughing out loud. The plot was great and very fun. I loved the relationships between the characters. It felt very much like a Mighty Jack book but during a particular part it felt like those books I fell in love with a couple summers ago and I was struck with waves of nostalgia over seeing some familiar faces from the Zita trilogy. This book maybe targeted at a younger audience but like all of Ben Hatkes work it is for all ages. I highly recommend this book!

    Huge thank you to Raincoast for this ARC! Are you as jazzed as I am that Jack and Zita are in a crossover comic? Because I was heckin' stoked when I found out. Ben Hatke writes some of the absolutely best children's comics out there, creating characters that any child can easily relate to, or imagine themselves as. In this installment, Jack and Lilly have a new evil growing outside their door, and something they cannot handle with their abilities alone. Enter Zita the Spacegirl!

A new party member to this adventure, and one who offers a newfound insight that surprise Jack and Lilly. Who knew interplanetary travel was possible? Who also knew, what demons and demigods could use this ability and threaten the balance of Earth? Seriously, this is my dream crossover, and I am so happy it exists. Zita and Jack's banter is delightful and charming, and all the favourite characters get some great moments in this story. Strong Strong is still the sweetest bean alive, and Molly greats some wonderful moments that really make her character shine. Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl is a fantastic continuation to both storylines and one not worth missing!

    I have been a fan of Ben Hatke since the first Zita book released and as soon as I read the first Mighty Jack book, I wrote to Ben and asked him if these two dynamic characters could please meet on the page. To my delight, he assured me this was in the works. This highly anticipated dynamic duo have come together for the first time and the epic adventures ahead seem infinite. Start at the beginning with both of these series before meeting them together!

    If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to have two of your favorite characters from different universes meet up, this is a great example of what could happen. I received an advance copy from Goodreads Giveaways, so most of the story was uncolored, but Hatke’s work is always impressive and adorable creatures and fierce characters abound.

It’s been awhile since I read either Mighty Jack or Zita the Spacegirl, so I had to reorient myself a bit with old characters and plot lines, but there’s enough info within this crossover that I was able to make sense of the current story. And enough appeal to make me want to reread all the previous books. The combo of sci-fi and folktale makes for a great mashup universe: goblins AND robots, space shuttles AND a camping/hiking quest. Basically, a lot of good things end up in this graphic novel and I now want to reread all the previous books in both series.

    It's the endgame for these young adventurers as Ben Hatke mashes up his bestselling series into an adventure filled story full of heroics, humor, and heart. Readers will gobble up this up and then will probably re-read the entire series again since they wouldn't want to say goodbye to these characters.

And I absolutely loved it. I thought the fracturing of Jack and the beanstalk was creative and well done. I actually avoided reading the Zita the Spacegirl books for a long time because I didn’t think it would be possible for Ben Hatke to catch lightning in a bottle twice. Then they announced that they were doing a crossover series, so I thought I’d better give Zita a go. I cautiously picked up a copy. And I absolutely loved it as well. I loved how Mighty Jack definitely felt fantasy while Zita landed solidly in sci-fi. I was excited, but nervous, to see how Hatke would mash the two together. Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl hits all the right beats and does not feel just thrown together. It is a fun, fast paced adventure without feeling rushed or hurried. I am not only a fan of Hatke’s storytelling, but also his artwork. He finds the perfect balance between moving the story forward with text but also relying heavily on the illustrations to give us a much richer experience. I also feel like the characters are rich and well rounded. They do not feel one dimensional. Their flaws and insecurities bring them to life and help you root for them even more. Hatke does a great job to reminding the reader what happens in the previous books, but I would definitely recommend reading the other books in the series before picking this one up. I think that this book will be devoured by any avid reader. Final Verdict If you are looking for a fun, fast paced sci-fi/fantasy mashup, definitely give this series a go.

It's a team-up he teased in 2017's Mighty Jack and the Goblin King, and I have been waiting patiently for two years to find out what was going to happen. After Zita and her friends arrive from their space-hopping adventures, Jack and his family have been housing and feeding the group. Lily, Jack's neighbor, who helped him fight the giants and rescue Maddy, his sister, is on edge, though. Is she jealous of Zita, or is there something more to it? Meanwhile, the giants are growing stronger and getting ready to invade above-ground: the gate between worlds is growing weaker, and they're ready to use it to their advantage. Zita, Jack, Lily, and Maddy have to get ready to battle once more. I've been a fan of Ben Hatke since 2012, when I first read Zita the Spacegirl. I love Hatke's art, I love his storytelling and world-building, and I love sharing his books with the kids at my libraries. Hatke is a great storyteller, giving each of his characters a rich backstory and exciting quest. He also weaves the fantastic with the everyday, giving us robots, dragons, giants, goblins alongside a terrified mother, the complexity of navigating tween friendships, and the frustration of being "ordinary". Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl is a wonderful chapter in the Zita/Jack saga. Is it the end? Well... you just have to pick it up and read it for yourself. Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl has a starred review from Kirkus.

It was absolutely gorgeous. I especially loved the color schemes used. The story itself was highly entertaining and I really enjoyed it. The ending was a bit of a surprise, but tied up things nicely. This was such a great read. I'm also intrigued by Jack, Maddy, and Lilly's adventures so I am planning on going back to read the previous Mighty Jack books.

    Jack (of Beanstalk fame) and Zita (of Spacegirl fame) together at last! I love this book. I adore how the separate plot lines and characters come together. They face giants, self-doubt, and multiple worlds. And I love the way that they all act like a family. Not perfect, not ideal, but when they fight, they find ways to resolve their differences and to forgive each other. They find ways where no way should logically exist.

Friends and families, chosen or blood bound, are what make and can save worlds. Forgiveness, self-reflection, and continual willingness to grow and change for the better: in ways not preachy or overbearing, these are principles every kid and every adult benefits from. These principles appear in this book. I can't wait to see what Ben Hatke has in store for us next.

Some events were slightly confusing because they started and ended very quickly. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will be sharing it with my students this year. Hopefully I can collect copies of the prequels for my library as well!

    Many thanks to NetGalley for this galley of one of my favorite juvenile series. This was a fitting wrap up to the Jack and Zita stories but still leaves room open for other possible adventures further down the line. Zita is one of my favorite girl characters and such a great role model. She's smart, adaptable, kind, funny, resourceful and loyal. I always recommend these books to any kids that come in the library, but to young girls especially. And I really love Hatke's artwork.

Zita's team up with Jack is a long time coming and it was nice to see so many characters from the past show up in this crossover. Hatke also does an admirable job of giving all the supporting characters their own voice and unique personalities. I have my fingers crossed that there will be more adventures to come!

    Ben Hatke arranges a meeting of two of his well-known characteres, Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl. This is a story that takes the reader from daily suburban life up the beanstalk to a land of giants, dragons, and other mythical creatures. Of critical note here is Hatke's art and plotting. The characters in this book are cartoonish but realistic. It's a style that is visually engaging and a welcome sight for the reader.

Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl is yet another fine book from Hatke and another example of a strong graphic novel from publisher First Second. As a former middle school teacher, I would gladly share this book with middle grades students, as well as readers who are younger and older. As a teacher educator, I heartily recommend Hatke's work (as well as many titles from First Second). This book is worth the trip and readers young and old will love it.
