Created by SUTU, The Love Punks & The Satellite Sisters – in collaboration with Big hART and the Roebourne Community.
In the year 2076, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of 21 young warriors known as The Love Punks and The Satellite Sisters. Follow them as they blast off from Australia’s Pilbara desert to the far reaches of space on a mission to protect the world from an angry sky god.
NEOMAD is a ground breaking epic sci-fi adventure created as an interactive comic for iPad and a 160-page full-colour comic book. A fictional fantasy based on real characters, places and stories that connect the people to their country, NEOMAD aims to bring attention to the rich Indigenous cultural resources of the Pilbara in Western Australia, equally as rich as the vast mineral resources of the area. As part of Big hART’s Yijala Yala Project, a group of 40 young people from the Ieramugadu (Roebourne) in the Pilbara have been collaborating with SUTU, creator of the multi-award winning NAWLZ interactive comic series.
In 2016 NEOMAD won the Gold Ledger Award – acknowledging excellence in Australian comic art and publishing. NEOMAD was also named by the prestigious Kirkus Reviews as one of the best books of 2013.
160 pages, Full colour.
