Hakata Soy's past life as the leader of a futuristic super team won't stay in the past!

The former space hero is doing his best to keep his head down at Astronaut Academy. Things aren't going so great, though. The most popular girl in school has it in for him. His best friend won't return his calls. And his new roommate is a complete jock who only cares about Fireball.

Hakata just wants to make a fresh start. But how will he find time to study Anti-Gravity Gymnastics and Tactical Randomness when he's got a robot doppelganger on its way to kill him?

Praise for Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity

"Roman previously adapted the X-men as a shojo manga, so he certainly knows his way around the "special academy" story. ...The artwork is very cartoony and cute, and uses free-floating layouts to add to the whimsy." - Publishers Weekly -

In the Press

Read the Kirkus Review of ASTRONAUT ACADEMY Zero Gravity. This book will make readers want to flip through the author's doodle pad, in case he has ideas that are even wilder. - Kirkus Reviews
