* "Maihack's characters, both human and nonhuman, are diverse, expressive, and visually distinct." -- School Library Journal, starred review
"Cleo's easygoing confidence makes her a likable... heroine, but the real star of the graphic novel is Maihack's art. The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo's vivacity and flair." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers." -- Booklist
"Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well." -- Publishers Weekly
