All Stories Are Anansi’s
I’m not of African descent, but I am from the Southeastern United States, so I still grew up reading Anansi stories. I don’t even know how many times I read of his exploits in library picture books, but he was my hero as a child. Even today, he is my model for what a hero should be.
As such, when an assignment in one of my university classes called for an 8-page comic based on a folktale, the Spider was the first thing to come to mind.
I got permission to put this comic online a few months after the class was over, so please enjoy it.
