About the Author

Yehudi Mercado is a self-proclaimed Pizza Laureate, cartoonist, writer, and animator from Austin, TX, who currently lives in Los Angeles. Yehudi spent many an afternoon in detention during his formative years and credits that "thinking about what you've done time" for his unstoppable imagination. As a latchkey kid, Yehudi would choreograph elaborate kung-fu fight scenes set to his RUN DMC and Beastie Boys records, thus providing the foundation for Sci-Fu (Oni Press). His projects as writer-illustrator include Buffalo Speedway (Devastator Press), Pantalones, TX (BOOM!/ Archaia), Rocket Salvage (BOOM!/ Archaia), Hero Hotel (Fanbase Press), as well as the mobile game Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon (Marvel/ Disney).

Reviews

"A lighthearted tale with black and brown characters, matter-of-fact Brooklyn bilingualism, and a solid message of creating through failure and love."--Kirkus
"[...] it's Mercado's artwork that truly puts a fresh spin on this tale; his heavy outlining and bright colorization make his cartoon characters jump off the page, which makes the many action sequences all that more impressive."--BookList
"His caricatured figures and dynamic layouts, coupled with a neon palette and graffiti flourishes, make for an entertaining story with a little something for everyone: hip-hop, tech-driven action, and romance."--Publisher's Weekly
A must have for libraries nationwide.--School Library Journal
