Sardine in Outer Space

In these goofy science fiction adventures, a little girl named Sardine must outwit Supermuscleman, the chief executive dictator of the universe, who is on a mission to make all the galaxy’s kids behave. An exciting series by two of France’s most talented comics authors, Sardine is a feast for the imagination of young readers. Emmanuel Guibert, an outstanding artist and graphic storyteller, takes a turn on the script, while Joann Sfar illuminates the writing with rambunctious, high-energy artwork.

About the author

Emmanuel Guibert

Emmanuel Guibert has written a great many graphic novels for readers young and old, among them the Sardine in Outer Space series and The Professor’s Daughter with Joann Sfar.

In 1994, a chance encounter with an American World War II veteran named Alan Cope marked the beginning of a deep friendship and the birth of a great biographical epic.

Another of Guibert's recent works is The Photographer. Showered with awards, translated around the world and soon to come from First Second books, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980’s Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter, the late Didier Lefèvre.

Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.

Joann Sfar

Joann Sfar is a force of nature. Having produced over 100 books since the early 1990s, he continually enchants, disturbs, and delights his readers with his unique rambling brand of storytelling.
He happily blends memoir with fantasy and philosophical musing with outrageous inventiveness. Sfar has evolved a personal mythology and a wondrous gallery of characters, many of whom have no qualms about guest starring in his other works. The result is a personal universe that readers around the world visit and revisit in growing numbers.

His works include Vampire Loves, Klezmer, The Professor's Daughter (in collaboration with Emmanuel Guibert), the Sardine in Outer Space and Little Vampire series, and the Eisner Award-winning The Rabbi's Cat. He lives in Paris with his wife, his two children, and a cat.
