About this product
- DescriptionReferencing a classic Haida oral narrative, this stunning full-color graphic vel documents the tragic story of a leader so blinded by revenge that he takes his community to the brink of war and destruction. Consisting of 108 pages of hand-painted illustrations, Red is a groundbreaking mix of imagery from the indigeus Haida culture and Japanese manga. Red is the prideful leader of a small village in the islands off the rthwest coast of British Columbia. His sister was abducted years ago by a band of raiders, and when news comes that she has been spotted in a nearby village, Red sets out to rescue his sister and exact revenge on her captors. Tragic and timeless, it is reminiscent of such classic stories as Oedipus Rex and Macbeth. An action-packed and dazzling graphic vel, Red is also a cautionary tale about the devastating effects of rage and retribution.
