An aquatic reef held down by an oppressive regime of blood-thirsty herons struggles to rise up in this harrowing tale of self-discovery, heritage, and revolution.
We follow The Little Red Fish as they journey deep into themselves and blossom into the leader they were meant to be. Guided by a magical orb and the will of the people, our hero strives to help a small reef in the Persian Gulf regain its freedom. The Little Red Fish is a creative retelling of the events of the Iranian Revolution from the perspective of those actually involved. A stunning mixture of political allegory and magical realism, The Little Red Fish collects the 6 part comic book series into one trade, including artist features and process notes. The Little Red Fish vividly captures an often-overlooked part of history, channeling folk history, oral histories from first-hand accounts, and academic research.
“ A visual feast with an enduring story – a real coup for the team behind The Little Red Fish.” – Navid Kohnsari, creator of 1979 Revolution–The Game
“The Little Red Fish is a masterpiece of allegorical storytelling. Khodabandeh and Moffitt have created a gorgeously stylized world that packs a powerful punch.” –Noah Scalin, founder of Another Limited Rebellion and creator of the Skull-a-Day Project
