In the News-Ben Hatke

Ben Hatke's Zita the Spacegirl in Print

First Second Books recently released Zita the Spacegirl, the first graphic novel by Indiana cartoonist Ben Hatke. Hatke's Zita is a young adventurer in outer space. In addition to appearing in print, Zita can also be found online, on her own website, Zita the Spacegirl, and on her creator's blog, Art and Adventure. Finally, Mr. Hatke has a website for his fine art and illustration, here.

Although native to Indiana, Ben Hatke lives in Front Royal, Virginia, with his family. He attended Christendom College and spent two years studying art in Florence, Italy. He was recently the subject of an article (Feb. 26, 2011) on the website of the Northern Virginia Daily. His websites and blog are well worth a look.
