JUVENILE FICTION / Comics & Graphic Novels / Science Fiction
This action-packed graphic novel follows the adventures of three inspirational superheroes to explore the issues of the climate emergency, for the individual and the planet.

Beneath the Arctic ice, the Methanaur is awakening. If this deadly methane monster breaks free, it spells the end of civilization as we know it.

Meet Professor Katelyn, Leon, and Mo - also known as The Renegades. Professor Kateyln is a whip-smart scientist who uses her scientific knowledge to develop spectacles that can catch glimpses of the future. Wrestling with his anger at the naysayers who don’t seem to care about the environment, Leon has the ability to become invisible - the perfect spy! And then there’s Mo who, in the wake of his brother’s death in a cyclone, manages to wield a solar shield strong enough to fight the deadliest of foes.

Our superheroes grapple with multiple environmental threats, most deadly of all a monster that lurks beneath the melting Arctic ice. If it escapes, this creature of chaos will release huge plumes of methane gas into the atmosphere, changing the balance of our planet’s climate forever.

Can the Renegades work together to save Earth before it is too late?

Unique approach to the issues of the climate emergency by young people for young people

The Renegades website will act as springboard for readership of printed book

Uses fiction, and the ever-popular superhero genre, as a way into the science and issues for the individual provoked by the climate emergency, to spread information and inspire change.

Content can be used as a teaching tool - the comic images have already been used as a teaching resource for 6 to 12-year-old children at Cambridge Science Centre

Dynamic, lively comic book storytelling format - low on words, high on action

Meet the student team behind the graphic novel, their eco-journey, and what motivates them in the climate revolution

Non-fiction section at the back explains key science ideas
