Jack Ford and Philip Cass provide a critical overview of the history of absenting and misrepresenting Indigenous peoples of Australasia. And while they point out that the Australian and New Zealand comics markets were much smaller than those of the US, there was still a tradition of white male comic book storytellers creating both racist stereotypes and also complex Maori and Aboriginal characters and stories.
