Detroit Saves the World (Girl Power Style) continues the theme of unexpected heroes, in this case the popular girls at a Detroit high school, who save the world from climate change. This is the second of three Detroit Saves the World stories, a series that’s an experiment in using art and storytelling to help raise awareness about climate change. Though the stories are fiction, the hope is they will inspire similar stories in the real world!
The Detroit Saves the World series will eventually be made into short films as well. The comic book version can be thought of as an alternative to the traditional storyboarding process used in film design. Detroit Saves the World (Girl Power Style) was written by filmmaker Diane Cheklich and illustrated by visual artist Mark Sarmel.
