    When friends of mine are getting into comics, or I meet new friends who are into comics, the first book I've been recommending has been Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection, Volume 1, for its imaginative storytelling, mind-blowing art, and important perspectives. I was so pleased that this follow-up while different, lived up to those aspects of Volume 1. If Volume 1 gave us multiple compelling visions of Indigenous futures, Volume 2 is more focused on the urgent problems of our world today.

Several stories, like "The Boys Who Became the Hummingbirds", "Water Spirits" and "Bookmark" paint haunting picture of environmental and cultural devastation, along with the hope to be found in traditional Indigenous knowledge. Other highlights in the collection were the gorgeous, sci-fi-infused stories "Winter's Shell" and "Journeys." All the stories do an excellent job of both moving and informing the audience, and actively demonstrating the resilience and power of Indigenous knowledge and culture.

    I would love to read some of these stories in a longer format, as their own separate volume. I think that says a lot in itself about how much I liked this collection This second volume lives up to the first, or even goes beyond it in some ways. It has longer chapters (or at least that's how it feels) that result in more rounded stories; they definitely struck me more and stayed with me longer told in this format. Visually the whole volume is gorgeous, and shows a wide ranges of styles and genres. I would love to read some of these stories in a longer format, as their own separate volume.

It connects to current issues in many ways, and speaks in the present tense about various cultures, even when it works with ancient traditions, which is refreshing and intriguing. I especially loved the hummingbird story, which was visually amazing, and very touching.

    In my opinion, this volume was stronger than the excellent Moonshot Volume 1. The creators roster was star studded and they created a wonderful array of indigenous stories from a variety of Nations. My favourite stories were the Anishnaabe thunderbird from Aamjiwnaang First Nation. I live a few hours from here and being Anishnaabe myself I was touched by the power of Elizabeth LaPensees writing and Richard Paces illustration.

Both volume 1 and 2 are incredible collections. The art, writing, colouring are all fantastic. There is so much love and care put into the production of these books and I feel as though the whole world should read them.

    This is an excellent collection, and I'm delighted to have backed it on Kickstarter. I hope there are more in the future.

    I found this even better and more accessible than the first Moonshot volume, and I really hope this series continues. It's such a beautiful way for those of us who are unfamiliar to first encounter legends of the First Nations and Native American tribes, and a gorgeous visual celebration of their traditions. Growing up in Minnesota I do know a fair amount about the local tribes that originated here, but these open my eyes to how truly widespread and diverse the experience of indigenous peoples I found this even better and more accessible than the first Moonshot volume, and I really hope this series continues.

Growing up in Minnesota I do know a fair amount about the local tribes that originated here, but these open my eyes to how truly widespread and diverse the experience of indigenous peoples is across the Americas. A lot of these tie back to foundational myths, which I think is part of the reason I found them so accessible. I truly enjoyed this and will certainly be picking up future anthologies should they be produced.

    While overall, I felt the stories in the first volume were stronger as a whole, I have to say there were a few stories in this one that gutted me in a way none did the first time around. Once again, the stories, and/or the retelling of indigenous legends, were wonderful to read, if not always completely understandable by a totally white guy, at the art captured the flow and feel of the stories very well. Overall, an excellent follow-up to the first volume.

    I had a lot of respect for the first volume collection so I was pretty excited to try volume two, and it still managed to blow all expectations out of the water. The story and art all levelled up, the emotional impact was incredible, would highly, highly recommend. particular favourites: Winter's Spell (CRY FROM FEELS) and Ka'tepwa: Who Calls (TEAAAAR)

    I loved this even more than Volume 1 (which I also loved). There is something urgent in the stories here about, for lack of a better word in English, stewardship, and there is deep love in the stories about family and community. I hope there's a volume 3!

    Another excellent collection! I was sad when I turned the last page and realized I had read all the comics in the Moonshot anthologies - I hope to see a volume 3 sometime soon in the future!

    When I first read the book MOONSHOT: THE INDIGENOUS COMICS COLLECTION, I was hoping that there would be a second one. The stories, showcasing Indigenous voices from North America, all have distinct styles, narratives, and histories that I really enjoyed. So it's awesome that MOONSHOT VOLUME 2 came to fruition, with Hope Nicholson editing it to bring a new group of Indigenous voices and stories to the page. I really enjoyed this collection, even more so than the first.

So it's awesome that MOONSHOT VOLUME 2 came to fruition, with Hope Nicholson editing it to bring a new group of Indigenous voices and stories to the page. I really enjoyed this collection, even more so than the first. Gnd given how much I liked the first that says something! It's hard to pick my favorites in this collection, but I'm going to try. WORST BARGAIN IN TOWN by Darcie Little Badger, Rossi Gifford (Ill.) This story concerns two Lipan women named Kat and Laura who notice that a new white hairdresser has come to town, and is giving a lot of haircuts. The hairdresser asks them if they want a cut, but they decline, as their hair is very much part of their culture. When Kat goes to investigate, the hairdresser is far more menacing than she seems. I liked how fun and upbeat the art was in this story, and I really enjoyed the metaphor of white appropriation and marginalization through the cutting of hair and the absorbing of Indigenous traditions. THE BOYS WHO BECAME HUMMINGBIRDS by Daniel Heath Justice and Weshoyet Alvitre (Ill.) This story takes a Cherokee myth about a medicine man turning into a hummingbird to heal his community, and gives it an LGBTQIA spin. A 'strange man' is shunned by his community for being different, and doesn't find companionship until another man from the town seeks him out and they start a relationship. Through their love they turn into hummingbirds during the day and return to their human form at night. As they travel back to their town in hummingbird form, they see others who have hummingbirds inside of them as well. This story was simply lovely, and it brought a tear to my eye with the hope and love that it had at it's heart. The illustrations were also gorgeous, with vibrant colors and lots of emotional depth in the drawings of the two lovers. I think this was my favorite story in the collection. WATER SPIRITS by Richard Van Camp and Haiwei Hou (Ill.) One of the most relevant issues when it comes to Indigenous rights is that of water rights, with NODAPL and other pipeline protests being huge issues in recent months and years. This story is about a school group going to visit an old mine in Canada, and the tour that is given to them by their guide. This story involves the consequences of capitalism at the expense of the Earth, and how we value non essential things (like gold) over the most essential (like water). This is a simple story that has a very clear and strong message, and the artwork is INCREDIBLY unique, almost Roto-scope-esque. But there are so many more good stories in here, from straight up folklore to sci-fi adventures to more meditations on water rights. If you haven't read either MOONSHOT collection, please please PLEASE do yourself a favor and do so!! It's just so good!

    Beautiful collection of stories based on indigenous peoples stories by indigenous writers and artists, covering traditional and current subjects in a new way. I bought it mostly for Tanya Tagaq, but the whole thing is amazing. Even better than Vol 1.

    An excellent collection of comics stories by indigenous writers. The stories were strong and varied, and perfectly paired with gorgeous art. Makes me wish theyd reprint vol 1. Thought-provoking, emotional, and hopeful. An excellent collection of comics stories by indigenous writers. The stories were strong and varied, and perfectly paired with gorgeous art.

    Probably the most beautiful art I've ever seen in a comics collection. So many incredible stories, drawing on oral tradition and modern experiences.
