A short preamble about this day and the chance to make something special happen on Wednesday
I had the good fortune to be introduce to Jon Proudstar almost a decade ago. The man who brought us together was another great John, John Fusco; my collaborator on Little Monk and the Mantis, the award winning children’s picture book I illustrated in 2012.
THE COMICS FU SHOW is proud to present the return of Tribal Force comics’ first All Native American Super Hero Team!
Originally created in 1996 by writer Jon Proudstar and artist Ryan Huna, in 2014 Tribal Force would be recognized by the Smithsonian Institute as “the first all native american super hero team.” Since than, MACHINE Comix has been working incredibly hard on long awaited TRIBAL FORCE Kickstarter Campaign and they’ll be launching live with us.
