We Love Zita!

In honor of Zita last epic adventure, Rafael drew this Claudette-Zita crossover…

A little Claudette=Zita crossover!

BLRG! As Ben Hatke brings the adventures of our favorite spacegirl, Zita to an end, we’d like to remember her greatest moments. For me, I can never get this image out of my head. It’s from early in the first book, when Zita, an ordinary earth girl, gets miraculously transported to a planet far away with many strange creatures.  One of the first creatures this girl encounters is a giant slimy snail who proceeds to run her over. What’s the girl’s reaction? “BLRG!” There are a million ways to react to being slimed but for some reason, “BLRG!” Seems perfect to me. BLRG sort of means, ‘that was pretty disgusting, but I can take it.’ BLRG is what tells you this ordinary earth girl is about to have an extraordinary journey through space and slime. BLRG! Go Zita!
