A Native American Comic Book Industry

Appropriation-FINALaa

INC Comics was founded by Arigon Starr and Teddy Tso at the Phoenix Comic Con in 2011, along with several other Native American comic book artists and creators. They wanted to get a group together to collaborate and strengthen the presence of Native people in the comic book world/industry

In 2012, Lee Francis came on board as publisher and they produced their first collaborative publication, INC’s Universe. This past April, they released their first teaser issue, Tales of the Mighty Code Talkers, a preview of their 70-page graphic novel featuring 6 original stories of Native American Code Talkers, from World War One to Korea. They will release this in October of this year and expect to produce two additional titles before the end of the year: Pueblo Jones and Kaui (Indigenous Fairy Tales).
