    One thought on “Kiviuq and the Mermaids”

    1. Watch out for these mermaids! They will try to drag you under! Excellent retelling of this legend with art that reminded me of John Bolton's work.

    2. In this Inuit tale, the reader learns all about Kiviuq, who was out chasing a seal one day. While the seal was able to elude capture, Kiviuq ended up lost in the middle of the sea.

So, once Kiviuq was safe, he had to rely on his own strength and experience to find his way home." I wanted more of sympathetic-Kiviuk -- the one person who survives this magical storm on account of he wasn't cruel to an orphan. So the encounter with the mermaids felt sort of disappointing to me, because it doesn't rely on [...]
