Super Indian Cast of Characters
Oh, the excitement of it all!
Arigon will be joining fellow Indigenous Narratives Collective members Lee Francis IV, Marty Two Bulls and Michael Sheyahshe at the annual Denver Comic Con.
The group has multiple panels and will also have a booth/table at the Exhibit Hall.
Tickets are available on the Denver Comic Con website at www.denvercomiccon.com
We also have exciting news! The folks at Comixology have added “Super Indian Volume One” to their vast online catalog and will be offering it for sale. For those of you wondering what Comixology is — they sell digital copies of hundreds of mainstream comic book titles like “Superman,” “Iron Man,” and “The Walking Dead.”
“I’m so thrilled about this,” grinned Arigon. “When I was at the Comixology panel at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, they let indie artists know that they would be opening their doors to artists like me. They would be setting up a committee to look at every submission and make sure that your project was a quality, professional comic. I am beyond proud that my work on ‘Super Indian’ made the cut!”
The on-sale date for “Super Indian Volume One” is Wednesday, June 5th. As soon as we get the official link, you KNOW it will be here.
In the meantime, check out the Comixology site and start making a wish list!
In the meantime, enjoy one of Arigon’s sketches from her time at Phoenix Comic Con — it’s our favorite feline Kyle — as a “Doctor Who”-styled Time Lord!
That’s the fabulous artwork of Ryan Huna Smith, one of the members of the Indigenous Narratives Collective and an amazing fine artist. Ryan is working on his series “Gan,” and was able to secure a most excellent moderator for the “Native American Comics Roundtable” — the legendary poet/writer from Acoma Pueblo, Simon Ortiz.
Having Simon Ortiz moderator our panel is like…well….having Maya Angelou or Robert Frost be the host of our show. Seriously.
Hope you’ll find time to join Rezium Studios (Arigon Starr and Janet Miner) at the Phoenix Comic Con, which happens May 23-26 at the downtown Phoenix Convention Center. There will be an Indigenous Narratives Collective Booth on the trade show floor.
We encourage you to come down and support ALL of the fantastic Native artists/writers who are working hard to make sure we’re represented in the comic book world!
Are you excited yet? Super Indian Issue #5, “The Curse of Blud Kwan’Tum” is here!
We’ve been excited about all the orders we’ve been receiving via Amazon and Paypal! The support is appreciated and it’s great to know the word about “Super Indian” is getting out thanks to all who’ve been reading online since April 2011.
Had an interesting question from a reader who wanted to know where to buy or view Super Indian Issue #1 and #2. Well….we have a confession to make! Those issues are “in the can” — but they were produced wa-a-a-ay back in 2007 and not really up to our exacting standards. Arigon readily admits — “Hey, I was just learning how to put together a comic and I KNOW I can do better!”
Expect to see the origin story of Hubert Logan in a future edition of the printed version of “Super Indian.”
If you’re curious about the story, you can listen to the first episode of the “Super Indian” radio series and get an idea of how the whole “he ate tainted commodity cheese and got super powers” went down. The episode is called “Commod Bod” and you can find it on our website and the PRX.org radio website.
