Wax, aspiring DJ and sci-fu master-in-training, made it back safely from the alien robot planet of Discopia, where he defeated the Five Deadly Dangers and became the rightful king of Discopia. He doesn’t want the crown, though. He just wants things to go back to normal. Wax and his crew thought the robot trouble was behind them, but strange creatures have been showing up in Brooklyn, and Wax is determined to take care of them once and for all. Little does he know, there’s a new villain in Discopia, and she’ll do anything to take the crown from Wax. Wax starts to worry he doesn’t have what it takes to protect his family, friends, and all of Brooklyn from the new threats. Wax will need to kick his hip-hop and sci-fu training into high gear—and learn to rely on his family and friends for help—if he’s going to have a shot at saving his neighborhood.
From legendary cartoonist Yehudi Mercado comes the much-anticipated followup to his hit Sci-Fu: Kick it Off. With a second volume jam-packed with all kinds of hip-hop, sci-fi, and kung-fu goodness, Sci-Fu: It Takes 2 spins the perfect track of friends working together to protect their home.

Sci-Fu Vol.1 was a hit in my Media Center and this sequel is bound to follow in its footsteps.
Wax, training to be a sci-fu master, returns safely from Discopia, a planet chock full of aliens. It's an exciting story when Wax returns to Earth, specifically Brooklyn, and the fun takes off from there.
The book is beautifully illustrated and vibrant colors abound. What's especially unique and exciting is the dialogue in the book. A combination of hip0hop and sci-fi will keep readers engaged from the first to last page. The dialogue is sharp, witty and deftly written..
The message of relying on your friends and family resonates throughout the book. Delightful!
