    We need this comic. It’s a staple of the Big Two to include Greek and Norse mythology into their tales. They lace these mythologies into their heroes and give them prominent places in the universe. We don’t see that same attention being given to African and African diaspora mythologies. They are relegated to obscure characters and when they are seen, it’s mainly as throwaway bad guys. So it’s refreshing to see a comic giving OUR mythologies the same amount of attention and care paid to Eurocentric myths.

    Is’nana is definitely a work of #ownvoices. For those unfamiliar with that term, it’s when cultural works are actually written by people from the culture they’re writing about. Greg has roots in what he’s writing about here and it shows because there is nuance and depth that someone from outside the culture would not have been able to apply. Some things just can’t be researched.

    The artwork is beautiful and it’s crazy that such quality is coming out of an indie comic. This can and should be right up there with any big name comic. Is’nana has all the youthful exuberance of Spider-Man, the moral integrity of Superman and plenty of cool powers to go along with. And if nothing else sells you on the comic…MAN LOOK AT THAT COVER!!
