Red: A Haida Manga by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas
Red is the prideful leader of a small village in the islands off the northwest coast of British Columbia. His sister was abducted years ago by a band of raiders. 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 time- less, it is reminiscent of such classic stories as Oedipus Rex and Macbeth. Red by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaasis an action-packed and dazzling graphic novel that is also a cautionary tale about the devastating effects of rage and retribution. The hardcover edition was nominated for the B.C. Bookseller’s Choice Award, a Doug Wright Award for Best Book and a 2010 Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Canadian Cartoonist.
