Native American Comic Book Debuts

The newest thing to hit the comic book shelves this summer is a publication about Native American superheroes.

"Peace Party," a bold new series from Blue Corn Comics, is dazzling readers with its fast-paced mix of action, humor, and intelligence.

Unlike most comic book violence, "Peace Party" characters deal with multi-cultural conflicts.

"Peace Party" is the story of two young Indians, modeled after members of the Pueblo tribes, who are chosen by the gods to become superheroes. It portrays Native people as they are today, free from myths and stereotypes.

With storylines ranging from prejudice and pollution to supervillains and the supernatural, "Peace Party" is tapping into America's growing ecological, multicultural, and spiritual trends.

A portion of the profits from sales of the comic book have been designated for Native organizations such as the American Indian College Fund.
