Rejoice! A Beto Hernandez book for kids: Venus is a durable hardcover edition, built to stand up to multiple readings, yet still bearing a pint-sized price. This 96-page square-format volume collects all the original Venus strips that ran in that Fantagraphics foray into comics for kids, Measles, at the turn of the millennium (1999 - 2001). And, even more importantly, it starts off with an all-new 24-page story, "The World of Venus" done specifically for this volume. Anyone not already familiar with the adventure of Venus and her pals can check out this 9-page PDF preview. Comics fun for the entire family, from la casa de Hernandez to yours.
