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 ), is a nonstop adventure with a unique cast of characters unlike any you've ever seen before.

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.

Fans of Mike Maihack's Cleopatra in Space and Ben Hatke's Zita the Spacegirl will embrace Red's Planet , a boldly illustrated and imaginative new series for readers of all ages.

"Fun, sharp, hilarious, and rip-roaringly original!""-- Jeff Smith, Bone

"The only thing that's missing is seeing Red's Planet on my bookshelf-- sandwiched between Jeff Smith's Bone and my library of Pixar Films."-- Mike Maihack, Cleopatra in Space

"Red's Planet is a fantastic and fun journey for young readers, but it's also a great trip down memory lane for their parents. The story weaves together a lot of the fun stories we watched and read in the '80s and '90s and spins them into something new." -- Kazu Kibuishi, creator of Amulet, Flight, and Explorer

"Filled with genuine sense of childlike awe and style of story, art, and filmmaking reminiscent of Jeff Smith's Bone . Eddie Pittman really has the goods." -- Dan Povenmire, co-creator of Disney's Phineas and Ferb

"A meeting of everything that is great about comic books...incredible art, spellbinding storytelling, rich characters, fun, adventure, humor...and heart." -- Tom Richmond, Mad Magazine artist and President of the National Cartoonist Society

Red is a stubbornly solitary outsider whose dreams of escaping life come true in ways she never expects when she is abducted by aliens. After a few bizarre twists, she finds herself crashed on a distant planet with a few other misfit castaways collected from across the universe. This odd crew must figure out how to survive, and Red finds herself unintentionally being a leader. It's a quirky adventure with plenty of humor and vibrant illustrations.

Fun adventure story. Brave girl hero, alien abduction and finding a place to call home. Great for fans of Zita the Space Girl and the Bone Series.
