One day, Red Eden creator Greg Simay had his own “vision of Mars”: Native Americans flourishing on the Red Planet, infusing it with their culture and spirituality. He said, “When the farsighted Native Americans decided to make a fresh start on Mars, they may have had Buckminster Fuller’s quote in mind: ‘You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.’” Along with co-writers Michael White and R.J. Johnson, and classically-trained oil painter and comic-book artist Kyle La Fever, Simay brought Red Eden to life in this 122-page full-color graphic novel. The book’s striking cover is by acclaimed Navajo artist Jolene Nenebah Yazzie, whose work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian. “Ms. Yazzie is renowned for her stylish and dramatic portraiture of indigenous women as warriors,” said Simay. “This perfectly suits Red Eden's courageous heroine Takenya, who comes of age and leads her people's fight against the desperate crime bosses from Earth who try to take over Mars."
