All cultures have tales of the trickster—a crafty creature or being who uses cunning to get food, steal precious possessions, or simply cause mischief. He disrupts the order of things, often humiliating others and sometimes himself. In Indigenous traditions, the trickster takes many forms, from coyote or rabbit to raccoon or raven. This beautiful anniversary edition graphic anthology of  trickster tales brings together Indigenous folklore and the world of comics.

In Trickster, twenty-four Indigenous storytellers were paired with twenty-four comic artists, telling cultural tales from across America. Ranging from serious and dramatic to funny and sometimes downright fiendish, these tales bring tricksters back into popular culture.

For ages twelve and up!
