Locally based comic book set to debut this week

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A locally created comic book called AUMAKUA GUARDIANS OF HAWAII goes on sale this coming Wednesday.

Aumakua is a Hawaiian word. 'Aumakua are protectors, ancestral spirits, family or personal gods.

In this story it begins by explaining that the 'Aumakua Guardians of Hawaii were formed when the first natives came to the islands to protect the land and its people.

Now, in the present day, a new team has banded together to carry on the tradition of their predecessors. This is the first multi-cultural incarnation of the 'Aumakua. The team consists of members of local people that are of different ethnicities and cultures.

Together they are the frontline to battle any threat to Hawaii and its people.

Creator Christopher Caravalho and fellow collaborating artist Kristopher Lohman will be at Collectors Maniacs in Kaimuki tomorrow night from 5pm to 7pm to sign this limited edition.
