Summary
A funny, action-packed graphic novel featuring a young Cleopatra -- yes, THAT Cleopatra -- who's transported to the future and learns it's up to her to save the galaxy!

When a young Cleopatra (yes, THAT Cleopatra) finds a mysterious tablet that zaps her to the far, REALLY far future, she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy from the tyrannical rule of the evil Xaius Octavian. She enrolls in Yasiro Academy, a high-tech school with classes like algebra, biology, and alien languages (which Cleo could do without), and combat training (which is more Cleo's style). With help from her teacher Khensu, Cleo learns what it takes to be a great leader, while trying to figure out how she's going to get her homework done, make friends, and avoid detention! Now a TV series on NBCUniversal's streaming service, Peacock!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Instead of looking forward to her rule, Cleopatra yes, that Cleopatra prefers to skip her algebra lessons in favor of playing with slingshots. Plans to celebrate her fifteenth birthday are put on hold when she is transported to a future complete with ray guns, an adorable council of talking cats, and a dictator who has wiped out all the galaxy's electronic knowledge and kept it for himself. The good news? Cleopatra is the savior who will restore order to the Nile galaxy. The bad news? There's no way home. And she still has to take algebra. Cleo's mentor, a historian cat, is one of the best sidekicks around, and the imaginative content (example: an interplanetary space bike in the shape of a sphinx) and flow of Maihack's panels is a delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers. The origin narrative slows some of the action, but readers will still eagerly anticipate book two of this promising series.--Jones, Courtney Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Even time-displaced Egyptian queens-to-be have to finish their homework before they can save the galaxy. After inadvertently being transported to an alien world in the distant future, 15-year-old Cleopatra must balance algebra, boys, and birthdays with her prophesied destiny as the savior of all civilization. The collective knowledge and history of thousands of planets is in danger of falling to the Xerx, an interstellar conquering horde led by the malevolent Xaius Octavian, and the residents of the Ailuros System have pinned their hopes on Cleo. Maihack's debut graphic novel sets the stage for what looks to be a series of Star Trek-style space adventures punctuated with far-future high school drama. Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well. A good two-thirds of the book is spent getting Cleo (and readers) up to speed, with the sci-fi swashbuckling mostly limited to the last of three chapters. Maihack's conservative designs are also something of a missed opportunity, considering the visual potential of the "Egypt in space" concept. Ages 8-12. Agent: Judith Hansen, Hansen Literary. (May)?
