Description

 

Canada’s favourite sport gets out-of-this world treatment in this action-packed, laugh-out-loud graphic novel!

 

Isaac may be the G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time) in his hockey video game, but after a championship game-losing accident, he’s an epic fail on actual ice.

Unfortunately, the Pods’ robot scout from Planet Galaxia doesn’t know this, and beams him up and away to be the new superstar of their terrible team—the worst in the GL (Galaxian Hockey League). Fortunately for the Pods, Isaac’s new neighbour Lily is along for the ride — and she just might be the best goalie this side of the Milky Way.

But the interstellar game isn’t quite like hockey on Earth. The stakes are higher. Opposing players are shaped like trees, or electrified, or built like actual boulders. And even if Isaac is able to whip the octopus-like Pods into shape, Emperor Mad Maroon, the ruler of Galaxia, might not release the Earthlings. Can Isaac score a win in the Galaxia Championship Tournament . . . and get back to home ice?
