Graphic Classics has announced Native American Classics, adaptations of public domain literary works by Native Americans. As with their fantastic African-American Classics, they have sought out as many Native creators as possible to adapt these works.
Among the women contributing are:
Andrea Grant (Coast Salish), writer of Minx: Dream War
Tara Audibert (Maliseet), a former animator and creator of children’s book Matthew Loses His Laugh
Afua Richardson (Cherokee), artist of Genius
Arigon Starr (Kickapoo), the webcartoonist behind Super Indian
Weshoyot Alvitre (Tongva), artist on Tenth Muse and Archaic.
Native women whose work is being adapted includes short story writer and memoirist Zitkala-Sa (Sioux), oral traditionist Buffalo Bird Woman (Hidatsa), and poet Emily Pauline Johnson (Mohawk).
The Graphic Classics line has been doing a wonderful job drawing attention to lesser known literary works and minority voices in both literature and comics, and I hope they continue to do so. I can think of a number of Asian-American and Latin@ works and creators I’d like to see given the Graphic Classics treatment. And who knows, maybe a “Women’s Classics” or even “LGBT Classics”?.
Native American Classics will be released in March, and is available for pre-order. I can’t wait to get my copy!
