Super Indian Cast of Characters
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.
