Sparkplug Highlight: Ce/Ze by Suzette Smith

Ce/Ze, the fourth book in the Sparkplug Minis Series, is Suzette Smith’s dreamlike take on Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Amelia Smith and Honey Czarny are 7th grade girls who discover that they share fragmented memories of another world in which they were powerful beings names Ce and Ze. When a rival king’s plot to kill Ze nearly succeeded, Ce and Ze were forced to escape to our world. Honey and Amelia study and emulate human behavior but feel no real connection with humanity. Smith’s dreamy, loose style further blurs the line between dreams, memories, and reality.

(28 pages, black and white with color cover, 5.5" x 8.5", Sparkplug Comics, $5)
Ce/Ze is available for purchase here.
