Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

When Zita pushes a big red button on a strange device her best friend Joseph is sucked into a portal to another planet.  Feeling responsible, Zita follows and finds herself working with an ever-increasing number of aliens to track down her friend.  The aliens are great and funny and the story is captivating and easy to follow, unlike a number of other graphic novels I've read.  And don't forget that the main character is a spunky girl, another plus.  A huge thumbs up from me for Zita!
