Title: Red: A Haida Manga
Author: Yahgulanaas, Michael
Subject Keywords First Nations, Aboriginals
Issue Date: 2010-09-30
Publicly Available in cIRcle 2010-10-26
Abstract: Through illustrative story telling, Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas challenges native stereotypes. The stories of the trickster Raven, as told by Yahgulanaas, are what most people would call comics, and they are fun, humorous and sometimes rude. Yahgulanaas takes traditional Haida stories and turns them into manga (Japanese-style comics). He has dropped the traditional rectangular boxes and voice balloons associated with the North American comics of Marvel and DC. Instead, he has developed a flowing style that uses a bold line stretched almost to the breaking point - a motif strongly associated with Haida art - to link the images in the narrative.
