Proceeds from Mojave support 1888 educational programs
The Mojave desert stretches approximately 25,000 miles, encompassing significant parts of what used to be known as California and Nevada. Now that the water has run out, it’s a wasteland once more. Towns and cities were abandoned as millions had no choice but to flee the desert southwest in a migration unparalleled in American history.
One scientist may hold the key to solving this hydro-disaster, but he disappeared during the chaos of this exodus—leaving his wife desolate and wondering whether or not she is a widow. Marooned in a land she no longer recognizes, Annie Lin resolves to stop at nothing until she finds out what happened to her husband, even if it means entering into a devil’s bargain with agents of a foreign government to do so.
Fusing Sci-Fi, Action/Adventure, and Western genres, Mojave utilizes elements of prose fiction, play, screenplay, and beat-driven illustration for a multi-layered reading experience delivered in the time it takes you to watch a feature film.
