Climb aboard for an interstellar romp–and more than 60 pages of cat content!
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (September 27, 2023)— From the mind behind the realism and careful intricacies of Emanon, Wandering Island and Spirit of Wonder, Eisner Award-nominee Kenji Tsuruta, comes a “slice-of-life” adventure from the naked depths of space! Translated by Dana Lewis (Wandering Island), Captain Momo’s Secret Base Volume 1 features action, humor, and a very ornery cat.
Moshi-Moshi Momo works from home like many people—in a den crowded with books and papers, shared with a cat that’s got its own agenda. Except Momo truly does possess office space—because she lives inside a starship, and relativity means Zoom meetings need half an hour just to ask a question!
In the year 3019 AD, humanity has gotten even more work casual: most of the time, Momo doesn’t bother to wear her captain’s uniform—or anything at all—onboard the cargo vessel Blue Chateau, as she struggles against interstellar tedium, company directives, low battery strength, and her ever-underfoot cat Grandpa John. But fear not, equipped with plenty of reading material and a crate of peach liqueur, in the long haul past Proxima Centauri, space slacker Captain Momo will at last prove Newton correct—a body at rest will remain at rest!
Captain Momo’s Secret Base Volume 1 debuts on May 15, 2024. The oversized (5 3/4” x 8 1/4”) 140-page volume is available for pre-order in your local bookstore and comic book shop and on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for $14.99.
