A Lousy Tale

Page 4

Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas

Once upon a time there was an Englishman who
Said that he had named a Pacific Island after a
British Queen. Some said that filled the emptiness
Of the Haida inhabitants with the fullness of
George’s wife Queen Charlotte.

Haida Manga challenges fundamental cartoon elements.
Where a typical comic represents time and space as an
Empty white gutter, Haida manga, assisted by Raven
Reveals that time/space is an active, twisting and expanding
Vitality where no island needs renaming.

This book is one of a continuing series
Of episodes called Rocking Raven. These stories are
All based on an old and foundational Haida narrative
Called Raven Who Kept Walking.
