Steel and Manitou tells a tale of the legendary Gtchi Manitou, a Great Spirit, embodied by a white horse with a feather in its mane. The stories are inspired by the Nêhiyawak (Plains Cree) Aboriginal legends from Saskatchewan, Canada. This tale begins when a young orphaned girl, Kassidy Kerr, finds herself in an audience for a traveling troupe of two Nêhiyawak stage performers, led by Vox, a story teller. Young Kassidy gets inspired by the tales and now has to listen to her Gtchi Manitou.
I do not want to give away the rest, but there is a secret stowaway, cold desert nights, and a covered wagon. Kassidy Kerr is now seven years older and the story is just getting started!
The art style is very charming and the colour palette gravitates toward the reddish-orange, salmon, burnt sienna side of the spectrum in the daytime scenes, so I am reminded of sunsets in the Old West. The linework may be handdrawn or drawn entirely with a tablet from start to finish. All the colours are filled in digitally. The characters are really adorable and you would not want to miss out!
If you are interested in plants, animals, humans, Gods, Ghosts, and Ghouls or just want to hear the tale of how the Buffalo gained its hump, read Steel and Manitou by ashtree house rated T.
