We (Indigenous People) Should Tell Our Stories
“Scalped” is a new comic book line from Vertigo (part of the DC family). While the series creator, Jason Aaron, has the right idea about how presenting Indigenous characters within popular media (i.e., attempting to break racial stereotypes and present some dramatic action), I still maintain that we Native people should be creating the very comic books that represent us.
However, Aaron’s mindset and heart might be in the right place. “Scalped” is due out in JAN ’07.
