About Red’s Planet
A New Graphic Novel Series
Meet Red, a quirky, headstrong 10-year-old who longs to live in her own perfect paradise far away from her annoying foster family. But when a UFO mistakenly kidnaps her, Red finds herself farther away than she could have possibly imagined—across the galaxy and aboard an enormous spaceship owned by the Aquilari, an ancient creature with a taste for rare and unusual treasures. Before Red can be discovered as a stowaway, the great ship crashes on a small deserted planet, leaving her marooned with a menagerie of misfit aliens. With her newfound friend, a small gray alien named Tawee, Red must find a way to survive the hostile castaways, evade the ravenous wildlife, and contend with Goose, the planet’s grumpy, felinoid custodian. Surely this can’t be the paradise she’s been hoping for.
Originally an award winning webcomic, Red’s Planet, an intergalactic graphic novel fantasy series from award-winning cartoonist Eddie Pittman (writer/story artist for Disney’s hit TV series Phineas and Ferb) and published by Amulet Books, is a nonstop adventure with a unique cast of characters unlike any you’ve ever seen before.
Meet the Cast-Aways
A Menagerie of Misfit Aliens
Red doesn’t think of herself as a typical 10-year-old. In fact, she knows she’s smarter, tougher, and, most of all, independent. After losing both of her parents, Red finds herself alone and bouncing from foster home to foster home. But Red’s had enough of family and is convinced she’s better off on her own.
The first day of work almost never goes well, and it’s no exception for Tawee. After making several embarrassing mistakes, he soon finds himself in the midst of total chaos on a plummeting space ship the size of a city block and the guardian of a strange glowing egg.
With a penchant for arguments and long naps (sometimes simultaneously), Goose never took life very seriously until it was too late. After a series of personal and professional failures, he jumped at the chance to take an easy job on a remote planet, free of people and pressure. Unfortunately for Goose, his private paradise is soon interrupted.
