POLYFANTASTICA is a graphic novel that explores the cosmic genealogy of humans through the lens of indigenous cultures. The story begins with the question: “What if we (Native Hawaiians) were never interrupted?” Out of this question, an epic, sci-fi tale spanning 40,000 years unfolds in a parallel universe in an oceanic realm called Moananui, home to multiple Pacific cultures.
On POLYFANTASTICA, Jeffry Cudlin of The Washington Post wrote: "Enos invites viewers into a stunningly complex fantasy world in which humans wear organic exoskeletons, evolve extra eyes or finlike limbs and use technology to develop collective consciousness. Enos’s world reflects and extends Hawaii’s ancient animist traditions. Yet readers of his comics don’t need to know the sources of his ideas to enjoy his elaborate fiction."
An ongoing body of work, artwork from POLYFANTASTICA is exhibited in the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane, Australia; SPF Projects in Honolulu; Reboot: Fashion Futures in Honolulu; and CTRL+ALT: A Culture Lab on Imagined Futures in New York.
