Dave Roman’s Astronaut Academy was a funny, really unique tale of a school in space. Now Dave is serializing the second volume, Astronaut Academy: Re-Entry, online. Here’s a preview of the new book, which will be out from First Second on May 14; if you pre-order through WORD bookstore before May 9, Dave will sign the book to you personally and add a sketch, plus you get a free bookmark and are entered in WORD’s contest to win an Astronaut Academy-style portrait of yourself. So if you like what you see here, you might consider that. Either way, enjoy the preview!
