Hello, Mars Society members and friends! I'm Steven R. Stewart, scifi writer and creator of Generation One: Children of Mars. Dr. Zubrin has been kind enough to endorse the project my team and I have been working on and to share it with all of you.
"Someday Mars will have its own Laura Ingalls Wilder to tell the tale of growing up on the new frontier. But with 'Generation One: Children of Mars,' we can experience some of that story now. It's going to be great." --Dr. Robert Zubrin, Mars Society President and author of "The Case for Mars"
Generation One is a 3-issue limited comic book series created with the hope of getting kids and young adults excited about Mars exploration and colonization. We're really hoping to show how 1) Mars colonists might live happy, productive lives full of meaning without ever setting foot on Earth, 2) humanity can avoid making the same mistakes on Mars as it has on Earth, and 3) Mars is an interesting place worth discovering!
My team and I have been hard at work getting this project ready for public eyes, and one of the things that kept us excited throughout was the prospect of sharing our story with The Mars Society. We believe that you, better than anyone, will be able to appreciate what we're doing. Please take a look at our Kickstarter.com page and watch our project video for more info.
If you find you're as excited as we are, please pledge, share, and help us get the word out any way you can. Our hope is to get Generation One into the hands of as many interested readers as possible. We believe there is a shortage of accessible entertainment that encourages young people to think big about humanity's future in space. Let's make some!
