Super Indian Cast of Characters
Happy belated New Year’s wishes from all your friends here at Rezium Studios. We’ve been in a secret underground bunker working on the next two issues of “Super Indian.” You’ll be excited to see some of the artwork for the new issues here in a few days. It’s a vampire-themed story that we predict you’re gonna love!
Please join Arigon Starr, Roy Boney and Michael Sheyahshe at the upcoming American Indian Festival of Words at the Tulsa Library in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, March 2nd. They’ll be talking comics — and will let you in on a few of their secrets to creating your own comic book stories. The annual Festival of Words will also be honoring filmmaker Sterlin Harjo, plus presenting panels on media, theater and music — with one of our faves, Joy Harjo.
The “Natives in Comics” panel is completely FREE. Go time is 11:30am — so get there early to get a good seat.
We know for sure that Arigon Starr is bringing some of the original “Super Indian” artwork and might even present some of it to a lucky fan. You will also be able to purchase your own copy of “Super Indian Volume One.”
Here’s a JPEG flyer for you to post everywhere. Hope you can make it!
We’re so thrilled that the folks at Oklahoma’s “Native American Times” have published a front page piece on Arigon Starr, “Super Indian” and the Indigenous Narratives Collective.
You can read the entire piece here:
“Native American Times” is a free, national Native American newspaper. Check your newsstand and pick up a free copy of the paper.
As many of you already know, “Super Indian Volume One” is now in it’s second printing. The books just arrived from our friends at A&K Printing Co. here in Los Angeles and they are stunning! The second edition will be available on Amazon.com shortly — more on that when it’s a done deal.
Arigon Starr is traveling to Milwaukee, Wisconsin tomorrow to attend the 20th Annual Returning the Gift Convention. Held at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee in the Hefner Convention Center, the conference will be attended by hundreds of Native American writers from around the country.
Lee Francis IV of Wordcraft Circle made sure to add a “Natives in Comics” panel to this year’s gathering. Arigon and Lee will talk about the history of Native people in comics and how to adapt your writing to the comic book/graphic novel format. Both Lee and Arigon are really entertaining speakers — so expect a lively panel with lots of laughs, insight and education.
There are two different sessions. Here’s the details:
Wednesday, September 5th from 3:15pm to 4:30pm
