Indigenous Comics Boom!

August 6 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

Looking at the enormous growth of Indigenous comics over the past 10 years.

Western Australia has seen an incredible wealth of Aboriginal-lead comics be released in the past 10 years ranging from vast, community projects, epic science fiction adventures, historical reimaginings, superheroes and everything in between. Diverse projects all united in their bold reimaginings of Country into the comics medium.

Join Scott Wilson, the creator of the latest entry into this literary canon, “The Indigiverse” as he chats with Wolfgang Bylsma, the Editor in Chief of Gestalt Comics about the transformative power of comics across this land.

Featuring: Scott Wilson, Wolfgang Bylsma

Scott Wilson is a Gooniyandi man from Muladja community and a Miriuwung Gajerrong man from Kununurra. He grew up on Yawuru country, Western Australia.

His first company, Ice Cream Productions who, in partnership with Comics On Country and Gestalt Publishing, have launched the Aboriginal Superhero Universe under the INDIGIVERSE imprint.

Scott has spent his whole life searching for solutions to help break the cycle of systemic issues impacting First Nations peoples and all those affected by low-socio economic disadvantage in Australia. He believes that creativity, innovation, and collaboration is the key to social and environmental change nationally and internationally.

Wolf is the Chief Executive of COMICS ON COUNTRY, and also serves as Editor-in-Chief for Gestalt Publishing, which he co-founded in 2005. Wolf’s publishing endeavours have helped change the nature of the comics industry in Australia and assisted in building reputations and careers for Australian talent on the international stage.

His work has helped facilitate First Nations graphic novel projects in partnership with Big hART, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, Magabala Books in Broome and Stick Mob in Alice Springs.
