In celebration of Children’s Book Week, cartoonist Ben Hatke is taking the opportunity to let us know the cost of letting your inner child grow up (hint: you’ll probably watch a lot of Netflix instead of breathing fire, juggling, shooting arrows or bounding through the countryside on stilts). The mind behind Zita the Spacegirl, Little Robot and the upcoming Nobody Likes a Goblin gives a colorful look into his process and why he’s more interesting than the other 90% of humanity. He intones, “hopefully by noon, I’m in a story world,” but we’re pretty sure Hatke permanently lives in one.
