Afi – Samoan superhero comics

Listening yesterday to the Thursday arts slot with Lynne Freeman on Radio New Zealand National : Afternoons : Thu, 28 June and they had an interview with Johnny Angel, a graphic artist and writer creating a superhero comic series based around Polynesian characters. (Audio here for the next 6 days or so).

Sounded like an interesting contextualization project, and I’ll be looking in the library to see if they’ve got any copies of the graphic novels. If that fail,s then the university bookshop claims to be carrying it.

More about the project at The Aucklander News: Superhero bursts into life and TV3 have a video clip about it here.
