Theproprietors of Galactic Hot Dogs return for more evil-bashing high jinks aboardthe Neon Weiner. Earth boy Cosmoe, his ginormous, ex-space-pirate buddy, Humphree, and their half-evil erstwhile kidnapper, Princess Dagger, are havinga great time hanging out and hawkin' hot dogs on the desert planet Arahas...butthey aren't making much moolah. Then Crostini's Cosmic Carnival and WonderCircus comes to Arahas. Animal-loving Cosmoe hates circuses, but his twofriends talk him in to attending. After a humungous Skorlax attacks the circustent and Cosmoe shows rare monster-taming talents, Crostini invites the trio tojoin the circus and sell their wares at each stop...Cosmoe can join the show too.Of course, that doesn't last for one performance (hey, the story has to movealong if there are gonna be enough explosions). Crostini's working on an evilarmy for Evil Queen Dagger (the princess's mom). Can Cosmoe and his friendsstop this nefarious plot? Brallier and Maguire bring their webcomic (now with ahome full of games and activities and videos at Funbrain.com andPoptropica.com) back for a second venturesome print volume with collaboratorKelley. Jagged comic panes and captioned illustrations, some full-page, propelthe story and add to the laffs. Final art not seen. Total fluff, often makingnot a lick of sense (in a good way), this will satisfy the appetites of fans ofthe first--but reading that first is a must (or there will be fewer licks ofsense). (Graphic/science-fiction hybrid. 7-10)--Kirkus Reviews "3/15/16 "
The crew of the interstellar hot dog stand Neon Wiener return, ready to foil another one of evil Queen Dagger's dastardly schemes. This epic, heavily illustrated follow-up to Cosmoe's Weiner Getaway (2015) has just as many heroic feats, narrow squeaks, mighty explosions, monster fights, and crude jokes as the first adventure. Dashingly coiffured Earth boy Cosmoe, his two alien sidekicks, and Princess Dagger, the semievil daughter of the aforementioned queen, literally hitch their wagon to a traveling circus that turns out to be capturing aliens to create an army of mind-controlled monsters. Time to, as Cosmoe puts it, "STOP THE BAD DUDES AND SAVE THE DAY!" Readers of the Galactic Hot Dogs webcomic, from which the series is spun, will know they are in for quite a romp. -- John Peters--Booklist "April 20, 2016 "
"Readers of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and those still obsessed with all things Star Wars will enjoy this silly romp through space."--School Library Journal
