The red-headed space heroine is back! This time, the evil Supermuscleman has developed a device for controlling children--a brainwashing machine! It's up to Sardine, Little Louie, and Captain Yellow Shoulder to keep him from using it. This installment of twelve more stories is filled with even more strange creatures--including a space Santa Claus, pesky flies that plant annoying music in their victim's ears, intergalactic yogurt thieves, and little monster carpet salesmen who live on a fully-carpeted comet. The outrageous adventures of Sardine continue in these spirited, boisterous, and gently satirical tales.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The impish graphic novel protagonists Sardine and her uncle Yellow Shoulder return in 12 enjoyable, nutty tales of the fun-loving space pirates versus the slow-witted galactic dictator Supermuscleman. The collection occasionally attains the height of gross absurdity (chocolate-defecating flies whose bite induces a sort of disco-coma) and now and then takes satirical shots at targets such as television, salesmen, and George W. Bush. In addition, the French creative team's European sensibility and unapologetic lowbrow humor--barf jokes and shenanigans such as sidekick Little Louie's urinating-on-a-planet trick (shown only in silhouette)--give the book an illicit, forbidden-fruit appeal that some readers will find irresistible. Sfar, whose recently imported Dungeon series is gaining well-deserved attention, casts the loopiness in sometimes crude, off-kilter visuals that imbue the stories with their crucial weirdness. On proud display here is the idea that children are our last line of defense against a world that is increasingly bound by stiff guidelines and unnecessary rules. --Jesse Karp Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Punky heroes, interplanetary action and unpredictable bouts of silliness characterize these hyperbolic color comics," wrote PW about the launch title Sardine in Outer Space by Emmanuel Guibert, illus. by Joann Sfar. Now, in Sardine in Outer Space 2, villainous Supermuscleman has a brainwashing machine that can control children. Can Sardine, Little Louie and Captain Yellow Shoulder stop him?
