Staff Book Review: Moonshot

Wow, I am so grateful that I am alive now, in a time where buzz words like truth and reconciliation and people suggesting what to read for Aboriginal History Month is occurring. However Aboriginal History Month is in June and this is something to be read now and reread often.

I just finished reading Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection. Volume 2 (after I read Vol. 1 of course) and I just can’t wait to share these amazing Graphic Novels with everyone. These must read works are all about NOW with a never before seen collaboration of top names, Buffy Saint-Marie, Richard Van Camp, Tanya Tagaq, Jeffrey Veregge, Elizabeth LaPensée, Ph.D, and so many more. One can just skim through and enjoy the art or a quick 2 page story. Or immerse yourself in top notch art and wordsmith, this is fun, this is challenging, you just might learn something and if you are still hungry for more the forward, introduction, afterword and biographies are eloquent and bursting with information and hints on where to find more work from all of these amazing creative minds as well as how to be an alley and support more works like this.(Submitted by Inti)

This anthology contains 13 short graphic stories all written and/or illustrated by native writers. The entries are as varied as the indigenous nations of North America, from tellings of traditional myths to superhero and science fiction tales, with equally diverse (but uniformly gorgeous) art.

This is a beautiful collection of short comics and stories by Native artists and writers. The cover art alone deserves its own award. The variation of the stories and styles keeps it interesting. A few of the stories felt a bit short, like they need a few more pages of story. But otherwise this is a wonderful compilation and I hope there are more volumes to come!
