Exclusive excerpt: first three chapters of "The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza"

Yesterday, I reviewed James Kolchaka's new graphic novel for kids, The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza, which made my six year old daughter laugh until she cried (I liked it too).

Today, I'm delighted to bring you the first three chapters of Glorkian Warrior, an exclusive courtesy of publishers FirstSecond.

    "Well, – thought the Smiling Robot, – At least my face is still smiling. Maybe if I go out in the street, people will still see it and get happier." So he opened his door, and as every door in the future, it whooshed and parted and let him out.

    There was nobody in the street. The Smiling Robot suddenly remembered why he was sad.

    There's a game coming out too...
