THE MOST PROFOUND, ESSENTIAL & REAL VOICE IN AMERICA. Musician, Poet, Prophet. His disquieting voice has the power to give ears to the heart. Like most natives raised on a reservation, John Trudell's early years were a case of living in America but outside of the "American Dream". The realities of poverty & racism instilled a heart-filled contempt for the notions of democracy & equality. The following years were spent searching for his place & purpose. 1969...the Indians of All Nations occupation of Alcatraz. Their national spokesman & national chairman of A.I.M., John Trudell, remained in the public eye & under constant F.B.I. surveillance. 1979...Trudell burns the flag at a Washington demonstration citing American "injustice & racism & classism" as a desecration of the flag & what it stands for. Less than 24 hours later, his home was burned to the ground killing his wife Tina, her mother, & their three children..."it was murder, they were murdered as an act of war... "The black period that followed was when Trudell began to find his voice as a poet, eventually merging his words with music in GRAFFITI MAN. His truth beyond poetry, awakens us between the distinction between illusion & reality, & activates the real connection between power: perception & spirit. "He was an inspiration to me...There wasn't an untruthful moment in his performance." -Michael Apted, Director, "Incident at Ogiala," "Thunderheart." "Probably the most charismatic speaker I've ever heard," - Bonnie Raitt. "He is a reality check. Justice is a fire that burns inside him. His spirit cries out for him. It makes him dangerous." - Kris Kristofferson. "AKA GRAFFITI MAN is the best album of 1986." - Bob Dylan.

When Zozimos is banished by an evil witch (his stepmother!) from the kingdom of Sticatha-the kingdom he was next in line to rule-he trains at battle (if you call chasing after butterflies training), travels across stormy seas (thanks for that, Poseidon), slays golems and monsters (with a lot of help), charms beautiful women (not really), and somehow (despite his own ineptitude) survives quest after quest. By the love of Zeus, though, none of it brings him any closer to home! It does, however, make for one quirky, original, giggle-provoking graphic novel sure to appeal to any kid interested in Greek mythology, or merely looking for an entertaining read.

The Wrath of Zozimos

Greek tragedy has never been so funny Zozimos' journey to the kingdom of Sticatha has been anything but smooth. He's survived enslavement, battled golems and a ravenous Cyclops, and generally served as plaything to gods and goddesses looking for a good laugh. All for the sake of reclaiming the Sticathan royal throne--stolen from him by an evil witch, aka his stepmother. You'd think that a stickman would catch a break after all that, but you'd be wrong. Arriving home only brings crazy family members and a return trip to sea, where mercenary centaurs and giant boar gods keep Zozimos questing and readers laughing. It would all be an epic tragedy if it wasn't so funny.
