Description:

Astronaut Dad is a coming-of-age story about the children of astronauts during the early 1960s right before the Apollo program took off. It's a fictional account of Jimmy Norton and Vanessa Kelly who discover that their dads, as Astronaut reservists, are actually part of a spy orbital program. In book 1, Jimmy and Vanessa uncover the mystery behind a fall-out shelter in the backyard. In book 2, tragedy strikes both families, and the two kids struggle with understanding their fathers. The story marks the transitions we go through with how we perceive our parents -- first as idealized heroes, then as the enemy, and later in life, to see them for who they are.

Reviews:

"Astronaut Dad is a refreshingly clear-eyed look at how America's
dreams for the stars impacted and interfered with the very earthbound
needs of those charged with making those dreams a reality and their
families. A wittily observed slice of Space Age life, thanks to
Hopkins' crisp dialogue and the elegant minimalist lines of
Schoonover's drawings."


-- Fred Van Lente, writer of Action Philosophers and Marvel Adventures
