Never Alone: (Re)Coding the Comic Holotrope of Survivance

Michelle Lee Brown


At the core of this (re)coded comic holotrope are two concepts: game as world (re)mapping (rather than game as text) and the relationality and connections that reverberate through multiple realms.  Indigenous use of digital media warrants engagement of indigenous theorists and scholars to this digital realm - Gerald Vizenor and Mishuana Goeman’s work on political and literary analysis to explore the concepts of Never Alone (re)mapping the comic holotrope of survivance. The portmanteau kinnections is introduced here to further articulate emergences of decolonial relations and kin-making practices.
