MB – Mighty Jack and the Goblin King Signing

Ben Hatke appears in conversation with Justin Currie at McNally Robinson Booksellers on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7:00 PM to present his newest middle grade book in the Mighty Jack graphic novel series, Mighty Jack and the Goblin King.

Like a bolt from the blue, Jack’s little sister Maddy is gone—carried into another realm by an ogre. When Jack follows Maddy’s captor through the portal, he is ready for anything . . . except what he finds waiting for him in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of his magic plants may not be enough to get him back to earth alive. But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novels Little Robot and Mighty Jack. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.

Justin Currie is an internationally-recognized artist who has worked with Blizzard, Warhammer, Nickelodeon, Disney, and is a regular guest of comic conventions across Canada and the United States. His first creator-owned project, Cassie and Tonk, won the Manitoba Book Award for graphic novels.
