ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– Artists, filmmakers, game developers and comic book fans gathered in Albuquerque for a comic-con of a different kind.
Sunday was the first ever Indigenous Comic-Con, a chance for Native American sci-fi and fantasy artists to share their work with each other and the community in general.
Many of the artists have found a balance between worlds by blending tribal styles and stories with pop culture icons.
Artists say the event is not only fun, but it’s a great networking opportunity.
In traditional comic-con fashion, there were of course lots of colorful characters and costumes.
Artists and visitors traveled from all over North America to attend.
