[quote]How long does a roller coaster last? Two minutes? How long do you wait in line? 90? This is a 168 page graphic novel adventure story that you can start reading, quite literally, as soon as you get your hands on it. And then, after you read it, you can let your kid take a crack at it. Or you can read it together!
With the book itself, the whole team (including Rob Leigh on letters and Hifi on colors) has put together a love letter to the kinds of comics and movies that simply don’t get made anymore – lots of adventure, optimism and heroism. With a ton of heart. If you miss those, on either side of that book/movie fence, “Space Mountain” is for you. [/quote]
