Missile Mouse Sneak Peek and Writing Prompt

Missile_mouse_130 My friends who are into comics were very excited last year about a graphic novel anthology called Flight Explorer. It is a group of different stories all by different artists. If you read Flight Explorer, then you already know Missile Mouse, who made his graphic novel debut in that book. This new book Missile Mouse: The Star Crusher by Jake Parker coming out in January is entirely devoted to the adventures of Missile Mouse.

Missile Mouse, secret agent for the Galactic Security Agency, is a risk
taker and a rule breaker, which is why he's in hot water at GSA headquarters.
Then RIP, the Rogue Imperium of Planets, kidnaps a scientist who knows about
the Star Crusher, a doomsday machine capable of destroying the entire universe. . . Time to let loose the mouse!

Take a look at this sneak peek from the book, and read on for today's Writing Prompt:

In this panel from the book, Missile Mouse has gotten into a spot of trouble. He's surrounded by those dangerous looking ant creatures but he can't kill them because they're endangered species! How is he going to get out of this situation? Write what you think happens next.

    Looks good, Mr. Parker.
    Hope the series and Missle Mouse does well.
    I’m a Scholastic author as well.
    My 9 year old son saw the trailer and thinks the series looks cool.
    I support you all the way.

    all of them start fighting and shooting wickedly…. after they escape, they continue their journey(P.S.i didn’t read)

    I`ve read the first comic on Flight Explorer vo.1 and in this one part Missle Mouse got stuck in a pretty bad situation and impressivly got out. If he did it one time, he can do it again!

    I bet they have some sort of weakness, like they’re attracted to fire or something, and so Missile Mouse lights something on fire and runs away while the bugs are distracted.
