Kyle Charles took a big break from working with a comic book giant thanks to hard work and a little help from a local company.
On Saturday at Wonderland Grande Prairie, the comic artist signed copies of a special cover variant for “Marvel’s Voice: Indigenous Voices No.. 1″.
« I’ve worked on it all my life and eventually got into the big leagues, so happy to be here, » said Charles.
Charles was born in Edmonton and is a member of the Whitefish Lake First Nation. He has been drawing professionally since 2013.
Charles said he couldn’t believe it when Marvel contacted them in August with an offer to illustrate for « Indigenous Voices » thinking it was a prank at first.
« After I found out that it was actually Marvel who contacted me, I immediately said, ‘Yes, of course. I’m happy to be available to draw the comic book, absolutely no problem. « And then I just called my parents and my brother and just talked to them on the phone. ”
Wonderland owner Vincent Joyall said more than 70 people visited the store – with social distancing and capacity constraints – while receiving calls from across Canada and the United States on « indigenous voices ».
« When we got the chance to work on it with Marvel and ask about a cover variation that only Wonderland would get, we asked Kyle Charles. We said, « We’ll do it, but only if it’s Kyle Charles. « . « And so they took the opportunity to work with us and Kyle. ”
Wonderland has 3. Bought, 000 copies of this edition for sale only at its Grande Prairie, Edmonton and Prince George locations.
Wonderland and Charles will also team up to create their own comics company called Unregistered, which will produce and distribute Charles content. They will also set up a studio at WonderHarbour in Edmonton.
