RED'S PLANET

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Musk

Red’s Planet is a new comic book series by Eddie Pittman for children, but also has plenty of humour and loveable characters to keep adults entertained as well. The collection is over 190 pages long and is printed in full colour, which makes this collection a treat.

Red’s Planet focuses on the character Red, a ten-year old school girl who lives with a foster family but dreams of paradise. She is then kidnapped by a UFO mistakenly and a series of events leads her to an alien planet where the adventure really begins. Red is accompanied by a variety of alien characters, each with their own distinct characteristics. On her journey she comes across Tawee, a loveable and silent alien, who Red manages to form a friendly bond with. One of the most interesting and beloved characters in the series is Goose, who provides the comic relief throughout the story.

The plot of Red’s Planet is well constructed and it is clear that Eddie Pittman has put a lot of time into developing the characters as well as the story, to ensure an enjoyable reading experience for many readers. The series is firmly placed in the sci-fi adventure genre, but there is also a hint of a coming of age, as the reader follows Red throughout her journey.

This comic series is a beautifully illustrated and perfectly imagined story that will capture the imagination of many young readers. Although Red strongly holds the limelight in this series, the other characters are able to hold their own and provide a unique sense of humour. Adult readers may also appreciate some of the pop-culture related references, such as Star Trek, which creep up throughout the series. Red’s Planet is a polite nod to sci-fi genre and will give many readers an enjoyable adventure. A superb comic book series that is full of humour, loveable characters and an extraordinary adventure, a perfect read.
