if interested, please email me (with page rate and link to sample) at - will select an artist by Monday at the latest!
I'm going to write this as if youre completely unfamiliar with myself and my work, because lets face it, there is a good chance you are. If thats the case, no problem...
My name Is Jay Odjick - I'm a comics creator living in Canada. I am from the Kitigan Zibi Algonquin reservation; I'm First Nations, Native, Aboriginal, Indigenous, Indian or whatever new term they have for us today.  I have worked on a few things in comics, online and in print, some indie / small press books ad had a webcomic at called Power Hour. Awhile back I worked on my first creator owned comic and I decided that it could be cool to take an existing legend from my reserve and kind of present it in a modern way and then build up from it. The result is an 80 page OGN called Kagagi: The Raven.

The legend itself revolves around a story I was told a few years ago - that back in the day the Windigo was running roughshod over the area and that a group of Algonquin warriors banded together to defeat it, when the mythological hero Wisakedjak wouldnt. To that end, they formed a coalition with what we call the Pagwoudj-Inini or "the little people of the forest". The two groups of warriors combined forces to battle the Windigo and the people he had infected in a huge battle.
Now, I thought that sounded pretty badass. I wondered why so few of us were familiar with the story, and wanted to do something about that - and at the same time, create something new. The question to me was, what happened after that?
After defeating this evil force that they knew would return, how would they prepare to battle it again? The little people blamed it's existence on humanity and bailed...what would they do if...well, WHEN it came back?
That's where the story picks up in the modern day.

It's got elements of superheroics, horror, good old fashioned teenage angst, mixed with a traditional Native legend in comic form. I figured some fellow listeners might want to check it out.

Kagagi: The Raven is listed in the current Previews, and ships in July. If you don't have access to Previews, the Diamond order code is STK436038. I know, we are all inundated with self promoters - but I think this comic is a little different and it's a heartfelt, project of love from a guy who just loves comics, trying to share his people's stories with other comics fans.

If you'd like to see some of the comic (the first eight pages, detailling the battle with the Windigo), please check out my website.…
I wrote the intro and got an artist friend of mine named Fernando Granea to illustrate the intro. I think he did a hell of a job, and I hope you like it!

I saw where you had designed your own comic book characters, and planned on making your very own comic. That is phenomenal. As a man with no artistic talent, it fills me with joy to see aspiring comic book writers. 

I am very impressed with your work, and enjoy your art style immensely. I was wondering if you might be interested in working on a collaboration piece, where, basically, you would be the illustrator and myself the writer. To be absolutely clear, this is a proposal for an entirely different series than the one you are working on (which I look forward to seeing). 

If you are interested, then I will send you a script and ask that create at least one page of work, of which I, in good faith to this hopeful future endeavor, will purchase at your normal commision rate, if you do infact do commision. 

I look forward to viewing more of your art in the future.
