Brave and bravo!

 

Integrating this form (comics/graphic novel) into a journalistic outlet is brave; it opens up a lot, formally. By amplifying an Indigenous storyboard, HCN is strengthening its adaptive ability to meaningfully respond to the myriad challenges we face, further opening the possibility of a magazine that enacts the actual context of the West, whose past, present, and future are ineluctably diverse. In fact, the power of the West rests in its diversity (both discordant and harmonious), of culture, of ecosystem, of expression. Bravo, HCN, for uniting the West.
