Overview


Drawn in beautiful black and white, Neptune is an all-ages graphic novel about a couple of kids and their dog, Neptune, who just might have supernatural powers. Erika is starting at a new school, and tells the story of how she and her brother were expelled to her new classmates, in which a dog discovered in their house one morning sets off a chain of bizarre events after it follows them to school. Playful and witty, Neptune is quite simply a pleasure to read. Neptune is Aron Nels Steinke’s first graphic novel.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Steinke’s full page drawings are engaging from the moment you crack the cover…. The artwork’s crisp edges and deep, saturated black reproduction is gorgeous.” - Midnight Fiction

"Neptune is a sweet all-ages book; it may be intended to be friendly for younger readers, but it’s just as entertaining for an older reader too. There’s so much to love, even down to the back cover’s comic strip where the main characters try and explain what the book is about. There, Erika says, "But please, take your time. It’s not a race… reading should never be a race." That’s absolutely true with Neptune; half of the joy is going through and re-reading the book at a slow pace, reveling in its charm. Definitely check it out." - Read About Comics
