Story, Drawings and Music by Kid Koala
132 page graphic novel + 15 track CD soundtrack.
He’s the guardian robot programmed to protect the sweetest astronaut on this (or any) planet.
But when she blasts off on a solo mission of outer-space adventure, he is left to wonder…
A tomorrow-days lullaby about finding your place in the universe.
Kid Koala’s second graphic novel, Space Cadet, drawn entirely on etchboards for a stunning effect in black and white, is accompanied by a “still picture score” on CD — 15 original tracks, each underscoring a key scene in the book, composed and performed by Kid Koala on piano and turntable. String arrangements by Vid Cousins featuring Arcade Fire’s Marika Anthony Shaw on viola.
This charming story of an adventurous space cadet and her guardian robot unfolds through a series of flashbacks and flash-forwards to reveal a unique bond between the characters. As it explores the relationship between technology and isolation, Space Cadet celebrates the idea of connectivity through family and the cycles that build generations.
