Read & Listen: "Space Cadet" graphic novel and OST by Kid Koala

Space Cadet, the debut graphic novel by renound Ninja Tune turntablist Kid Koala, as well as its original soundtrack (presumably to be played while reading) will be released this October.  The plot touches on a theme evident in a lot of Kid Koala's work: the relationship between technology and isolation.  The drawings are also characteristic of Kid Koala's previous album/music-video art while the music consists of his own piano playing combined with his instrument of choice, the turntable.  Check out a preview of both aspects of the project below or watch a video of the live setup (yes he's taking this on the road too):
