On StoryMakers, Rocco chats with illustrator Yehudi Mercado, creator of the middle-grade graphic novel, FUN FUN FUN WORLD, a story about a ragtag group of aliens who conquer the earth — or do they?
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Devastorm 5 is an alien warship whose prime directive is to seek out planets to invade and conquer in tribute to the almighty Alien Queen. The only problem is that the crew of Devastorm 5 is the worst in the fleet. In a last-ditch effort to be taken more seriously, the Devastrom 5 crew vows to conquer Earth once and for all. Ground zero for operation “Conquer Earth” is a defunct amusement park called Fun Fun Fun World, overrun by cats and hiding a major secret. Will the crew of the Devastorm 5 be able to complete their mission?
