Christian Galano Hi! Thanks for the friendship. Skyship Academy is a really cool idea; I can't wait to buy my own copy of the book. I was wondering, how many books are there in the series?

Kristen Thanks for the add Nick! I'll be reading your book soon. Looks awesome! :) I love Brian K. Vaughan too and believe Y: The Last Man would make an awesome movie or tv show. :)
