Ages 12+

Your kids have probably never read a graphic novel quite like this, nor one as deeply rooted in Indigenous culture and artistic tradition. Creator Cole Pauls is a Tahltan comic artist, illustrator, and printmaker from the Yukon. Driven by a desire to help revitalize the ancestral language of Southern Tutchone, he created this bilingual comic about two earth protectors saving the world from evil pioneers and cyborg sasquatches.

Young artists will particularly enjoy seeing Pauls craft a fantastic and unique sci-fi universe.
