Brenton McKenna struggled with reading and writing until a comic book he picked up when he was ten years old changed his life. An Indigenous author-illustrator from Broome, Australia, he now creates his own graphic novels, finding inspiration in ghost stories, folklore and mythologies. McKenna is recognized as Australia’s first Indigenous graphic novelist. He’s written and illustrated the Ubby’s Underdogs series and illustrated other projects, including Bold Tales of Brave-Hearted Boys.
