Summary

The power of water is the power of blood, flood and drought. Water keeps it real, keeps us real. Forgetting this, we turn the earth into a toxic dump. Remembering this, we unfurl the future as perpetual possibility.Water is also the strength of subtlety, quietly making its way through your body. perpetual is both a gift and a warning from water. Through drawings and graphic essays by artist Cindy Mochizuki and writer Rita Wong, the book visits some key sites where people have sabotaged themselves by desecrating water: the Pacific Ocean, the tar sands leaking into the Athabasca River, the historical salmon streams buried in sewers under Vancouver’s streets, pressing to be daylighted...perpetual draws strength from the rivers that still flow wild, like the Fraser River, and from friendships made along the way in  journeys with and for water. The book is a response to Dorothy Christian’s call to protect sacred waters. Humble and holy, water shows us a way to make peace and ethics, if we have the heart and spirit to learn.

    Malek was a warrior who lost the war, her lover and her soul all in the same battle. This is how she finds disclosure.I created this comic in two days right after the fall of the Twin Towers; you can say it was my personal reaction to that horrible tragedy. Battle of Angels has been published in Australia, England, and (of course) the USA. The artwork is a little unrefined, but people still like it anyway. I hope you also enjoy it, despite it's lack of skill.
