Life-action graphic novel presented at UH campuses
The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel Book One: Target Earth will show on Friday, January 11, 7:30 p.m. at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center and on Saturday, January 12, 7:30 p.m. at UH Māno’s Kennedy Theatre. The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience that mashes up radio drama with comic-books.
The premise for this unique all-ages show is simple—a period adventure story featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known—an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
The telling is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique—while three actors, one Foley artist and one keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music, more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, high-resolution, blow-your-mind comic-book images blast from the screen, all performed live.
“In 20 years of directing and producing plays, I’ve never seen an audience respond so positively,” said project creator Jason Neulander.
The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel, which premiered in 2010 to more than 2,100 people, will hit 24 venues around the country.
