Abstract

Wanderlust is a graphic novel project about human Mars colonization and its implications. It follows the crew of the All Earth Space Exploration Agency (AESEA)'s' Wanderlust mission, which aims to establish a permanent settlement. Along the way, the mission's engineer, Aubrey Lee, starts to question AESEA's motivation and sees a bigger possible future — one so at odds with AESEA's mission that it demands the seccession of the colony from Earth.

The rough draft — including the full-length thumbnails, printed proof of concept, installation, and live reading – were completed as my Interdisciplinary Honors in the Arts project. Since, I've overhauled the plot and updated the science in conjunction with new discoveries and technological advances.
