Here's some big news we've been almost bursting to share for the past few months:
This December (the 8th to be exact), Literati Press will release The Rez Detectives, a ground-breaking, middle-grade graphic novel from Steven Paul Judd, Tvli Jacob, and M.K. Perker.
In the tradition of Harriet the Spy, Encyclopedia Brown, and yes, Scooby-Doo, comes the first case for the Rez Detectives: “Justice Served Cold.” It's a hot summer on the Reservation. When the Ice Cream Man is a no-show, Tasembo joins forces with his neighbor, Nuseka, and his dog, Billy Jack, to take on their first case. With twists around every corner, this case won't crack itself, but when you combine Nuseka's brains, Billy Jack's loyalty, and Tasembo's … persistence, justice will be served. Cold, that is.
It will be available direct from Literati Press (both retail and wholesale) and through Diamond Comic Distributors, GlobalComix, and Comixology.
Judd and IllumiNative, a native-led nonprofit that works to increase the visibility of Native peoples in American society, will supply free copies of Rez Detectives to all public and reservation libraries in Alaska and North and South Dakota.
If you're buying through your friendly local comic shop, be sure to let them know that the deadline to request The Rez Detectives for delivery on the release date is October 21, 2021 (PREVIEWS Item Code: OCT211566).

Judd has written on projects for Marvel, Disney, HBO, and George R.R. Martin’s production studio. He and his longtime collaborator Jacob have worked on short films and features including the award winning film Shouting Secrets. Judd is Kiowa and Choctaw, a visual artist and co-founder of the NTVS, a Native American streetwear company. Jacob is Choctaw, specializes in media content that addresses health in Native American Indian, Indigenous, and First Nations communities through community-based participatory methods, is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in Tulsa, and has a daughter, Nuseka. Eisner-nominee M.K. Perker shows the talent previously on display in work for Image, Vertigo, and The New Yorker. Cover Artist Cynthia Canada is a Kiowa-Comanche painter and illustrator from Oklahoma, and work has been featured in the Sovereign Santa Fe 2020 exhibition at La Fonda on the Plaza and Tribes 131 Gallery in Norman, OK.

Opening September 3 from 6-9pm and hanging throughout the month, The Paseo Plunge Gallery hosts the annual "Comics As Art," a juried art show celebrating the medium of comics featuring framed, finished pages from Oklahoma’s growing community of illustrators, writers, and other creators.

Comics, or Sequential Art, is a powerful and complex storytelling medium that has a global reach and can be used to tell any type of story. For the second year, “Comics As Art” recognizes the amazing talent that exists in Oklahoma’s statewide comics community.

The 2021 Jury of John Eric Osborn, Colin Ingersol, and Greg White are pleased to announce the selections for the 2nd Comics As Art show:
Astounding Tales, Raymond Griffith (Norman) & Jake Scott Cohen
Buffer, Clayton Tuttle (Broken Arrow)
Dani Doomsday, Ray Claxton (Norman) & Sebastián Piriz
For God and Country, Kathryne Wood (Midwest City)
Fracture, Alexandra Brodt (OKC)
Tadpole, Meghan Harvey (OKC/Yukon)

The Best In Show award will be judged by Natasha Alterici, creator of Heathen, and the Audience Choice award will be voted on by Paseo Plunge Gallery patrons the weekend of the Paseo Arts Festival, September 3-6.

The awards will be announced at 2pm on Sunday, September 13. Literati Press Art Directors, John Eric Osborn and Jerry Bennett, will be on hand to offer critiques and answer questions about the comic book industry.

The Jury also awarded 4 Honorable Mentions:
A Restraining Order on Death by Zac Locksley (OKC)
Poppy by Kiwi Pham (Yukon)
Shifter by Jo Weiss (Norman)
Turmring by @cantocomics (Tulsa)

Hello, my new book is LEAVE THE LAMP ON (ISBN: 978-1649130501) which is the tale of my own grandparents. Dear old Grandpa abandoned the family to join the Army during World War I. It is set in Texas and Europe and tells the story of how cowardice can evolve into courage and how actions impact families for generations. Yet, it is not a beat down but rather a tale of humor and perseverance. I would appreciate your consideration. *** It can be ordered from Rosedog Books or Ingram Sparks to insure your industry discount and is fully refundable. www.facebook.com/Leave-the-lamp-on-by-Sue-Jones-McCullough-103121161865805
