Saskatchewan university holds comics workshop

CTV News reported on a comics workshop project being held by the First Nations University of Canada. But it sounds like there could be political victimology in what's spoken of here:
Students will also have the opportunity to learn from Shaun Beyale, a renowned artist who has worked for Marvel comics.

“I just want to share my experience, being an Indigenous person, I just want to show them that through hard work and dedication, you can do whatever you want,” said Beyale.

The students taking the camp are excited to hear about Beyale’s experiences.

“Just how he got there. Because he’s an indigenous person and so am I so I’d like to know how he got that far,” said Judy Missens, a student in the workshop.

Being a person of colour has its hardships because there are people who will turn their back on you or be rude to you, or have these really low expectations for you, and being able to push past that and do those big things is a good thing to do.”
For heaven's sake, does this make any sense after all these decades, even in Canada? There have been people of color working in USA comics for much longer than we think, including George Perez, Christopher Priest and Larry Hama, yet we're still being told something along the lines of the left's lecture that America is "systemically racist". At least, that's what the above from CTV sounds like, and it's not healthy. Quality of story/art depends on the education and talent one achieves in a lifetime, and past history's proven there are people of different skin color and ethnic background out there who've got what it takes to craft good art. Unlike today, where mainstream talent's sunken to terrible levels, and certainly at the time Axel Alonso was EIC for Marvel.

I don't know when exactly Mr. Beyale worked for Marvel, but while he may have good talent, it'd be wasted by working for Marvel in the current day, when their artistic quality's been largely destroyed. He should really work in the independents instead.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
