Mana Legends: Kamehameha
Comic Book, Graphic Novel
Mana Legends' Kamehameha is the first historical fiction comic about the life of Kamehameha produced in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi and English. Presented as a comic flip book, with two covers. The remarkably detailed drawings give incredible life-like and supernatural inspiration to this retelling of Kamehameha's early years. The rich visualizations, combining the real-world with the metaphysical world, bring readers into a whole new immersive experience when reading this fictionalized piece inspired by real-life events.
Christopher Caravahlo created Mana Comics in 2014 to celebrate ethnic diversity and showcase heroes from Hawai‘i. From an early age, Caravahlo dreamed of heroes he could identify with and always thought the idea of superheroes from the Hawaiian Islands would be NO KA OI (the best!).
