Planeta Blu, the graphic novel, is a fantastic afro-futristic adventure that tells the tale of New Bedford inner-city youth: Lares, her brother Angel, Tomé, and Tyler as they fight to save humanity and animal kind from the apocalyptic plans of Zander, oil tycoon billionaire, turned evil world conqueror. Planeta Blu is where Narnia meets the magic of Harry Potter and where The gritty reality of the Hunger Games meets the courages talking animals of The Jungle Book. Classic themes such as courage, compassion, sacrifice and love connect present-day teenage sheroes and heroes as they join forces and gain extraordinary powers from animals in order to save the planet from a toxic global genocide.
Tem Blessed is a socially conscious Hip-Hop artist that has been making relevant music with a message for over a decade. Born in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa to Cape Verdean parents, “Tem” has worked for over 19 years empowering youth through music. While tucking his 4 children in at night, he created original bedtime stories. Those fantastic stories became the framework for his debut novel Planeta Blu, which has beckoned him since, to see the light of day.
As an African American born in west Africa, I was called to write this book to create a world where a strong, young black woman would be the hero and that other youth of color could see themselves in the same heroic, positive light. This was a calling to create a unique and inclusive literary experience that helps to inspire diverse young readers to face whatever challenges comes their way in the real world.
As you can see from these vibrant images I wanted to inspire the reader and viewer to imagine a different, beautiful world in the midst of turmoil and upheaval.
