It’s a zoo in Zone Q! Having defeated Big Blue, Virgil and the rest of the Zodiac Dozen come to learn that the beast’s attack was the least of their worries. Intent on retrieving the Orb of the Zodiac for his own evil schemes, the man on the Moon will stop at nothing, no matter how many constellation monsters he needs to unleash on Earth! ­ Thought Ursa Minor was a formidable foe? Try her 80-foot-tall bigger sister! Or a 100-yard-long set of serpentine triplets! Or the most tall and terrifying threat of all, soon to crash-land in Lake Michigan! All newly upgraded by the Orb of the Zodiac, the Dozen will have to face these fearsome fiends while learning how to use their new abilities. From seeing through walls to moving in superspeed, each of the friends will bring something all their own to the table. Virgil? In his own way, let’s just say he can do a little of everything.


Perhaps the most mysterious member of the Zodiac Dozen, Virgil will at last connect with his friends, though likely in a way he hadn’t anticipated. With his quick-thinking bravery, he might just be the very hero Milwaukee needs to overcome the attacks of the night sky’s constellations!




Oliver Bestul lives in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been writing there since he was in his teens.


With a picture book, a few plays, some poetry, and a feature-length film under his belt, he decided to try his hand at entertaining a new kind of audience: middle-schoolers! Inspired by the chapter books and comics of his youth, he sat down and started The Zodiac Dozen, a 12-book superhero series for kids!


In writing the series, he likes to say he gives his young readers a lot of credit, challenging them to explore new vocabulary, genres, and life outlooks. Like the twelve main characters of his books, he’s excited to grow from the adventure alongside his audience!
