Taking its title from a body of work by Sonny Assu, depicting Spiderman in a traditional Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw style, When Raven Became Spider examines supernatural characters in Indigenous stories and contemporary comic books. These artists and storytellers depict Indigenous super-beings using popular comic book imagery, blurring the line between oral and graphic storytelling. Can their characters, in their new forms, still transmit old-world oratory tales, teaching us something about the frail human condition?
