This is the last call for the book launch for the latest comic from dynamic duo, David A Robertson and Scott B Henderson. Betty: The Helen Betty Osborne Story graphic novel will be premiered at McNally Robinson Bookstore (Winnipeg, MB), 7 pm, Tuesday June 2, 2015.
Betty is one of several projects I have been labouring over for the last few months. I am paired with the prolific David Robertson again (previously worked with him in 7 Generations, Sugar Falls and select stories from Tales From Big Spirit) to illustrate this important story about Helen Betty Osborne, a Cree Woman who lived in The Pas, MB. Her life was filled with ambitions and triumphs, but also tragedy as the result of racism and sexism.
The 30 page graphic novel was released May 6, 2015. It originally had a different launch date, but due to unforeseen circumstances, had to be postponed to June 2.
