An endless search for food, tainted cheese, killer pastries, feasting on the Death Star: that’s how Native comic book artists and illustrators incorporate food into their work. I talk with a bunch of “Indigenerds” at this year’s Indigenous Comic Con 2.

In the show:

Arigon Starr, “Super Indian”

Tatum Bowie and Damon Begay,  “Spiral,” Interstellar Comix

Jason EagleSpeaker, Eagle Speaker Publishing

Jonathan Joss, actor and voice actor

Gloria Begay, Diné Food Sovereignty Alliance

Enoch Endwarrior, Reclaim Designs

Maria Wolf Lopez, freelance comic book artist and illustrator

Elroy Natachu Jr., artist, co-owner of Natachu Ink and Zuni cultural demonstrator and teacher

Ryan Singer, Diné artist
