Castle in the Stars: The Moon-King

(3) 4-6 Translated by Anne Smith and Owen Smith. Following the events of The Space Race of 1869, this second steampunk graphic novel (translated from the French) finds our heroes hurtling away from political intrigue toward the moon, their ship a marvel of Victorian invention and their journey worthy of Jules Verne. The lush, skillful watercolors convey the mysterious aether and dazzling moonscape. Small panels within large trim allow for rich detail and continued character-building in the epic story.
