Captain Fingerman and the Boring Galaxy
The first in a comic book series of Captain Fingerman’s hilarious and exciting adventures in space.
Captain Fingerman was exploring deep space on his ship, the Banana Star, when he encountered a boring asteroid. What in space was a boring asteroid and where did it come from? He suited up, and with the help of BIRI, the ship’s computer, travelled through a wormhole to find out what lay in the Boring Galaxy.
Captain Fingerman travels through space on his banana-shaped spaceship, the Banana Star, accompanied by BIRI, the ship’s computer system who always saves him from trouble and tries to stop him from eating one too many bananas. Full of humour and told through detailed, comic-style illustrations, this series is perfect for fans of graphic novels and also an engaging tool to introduce science to kids in a fun way.
