The Healthy Aboriginal Network
42 pages. $5.35. (Bulk prices available.)
A terrific artistic rendering of a struggle faced by many Native American youth: serious depression and suicidal ideation. In this first installment, Kyle is a talented artist whose depression makes it hard for him to focus in class. Few seem to understand Kyle, or even try to, until a local elder comes into the picture. This is the first – and not the last, let’s hope – comic book release from the Healthy Aboriginal Network, a Canada-based nonprofit that intends to create similar products related to other social issues.
