SIGNS AND VOICES

SIGNS AND VOICES is a well drawn comic book that features Deaf heroes using sign language. The stories are fast-paced, exciting, and serious with topics such as social barriers, diversity, history and heritage. The heroes are role models surviving and thriving in a world where language could separate them from mainstream society.

Currently, comic books targeting the Deaf community nationwide are few and far between and SIGNS AND VOICES helps fill this gap for this niche market. The team behind the comic has a unique skillset to help produce a quality product. They comprise of professionals from Sweden, Brazil, United States and United Kingdom.

Two formats are used in the comic which are mainstream English and easy English. This is to assist those deaf readers who have difficulties with mainstream English. There is also drawn British Sign Language (BSL) within the comic for native signers. There is a sign language vocabulary dictionary for readers who wish to learn sign language. There are plans for four series of SIGNS AND VOICES with each series consisting of twelve episodes. 

Zamurrad Naqvi, the project member for the series, says “The comic has social aims but above all it is a thrilling story. It has heroes, villains, acts of bravery, prophecy, a magical forest, battles, self-sacrifice, mystical visions and each episode ends on a cliff-hanger. Yet the story isn’t old-fashioned or traditional, it is set in modern times with closed captioned television, computer hacking, anarchists – some of the episodes start with views of Banksy-style graffiti and slogans.”

David H. Pierce, chief executive officer of Davideo Productions, says “Being a long-time comic book collector and regular artist for the weekly comic strip THE OLD FOGEYS, I am a strong supporter of independent comic creators. Without readers, a comic book cannot survive. This is a quality comic book for Deaf collectors and we are proud to assist Deaf Power Publishing House in their efforts to expand their reach in the United States. Deaf youth can finally have a comic book they can fully appreciate with their culture and language given the respect it deserves.”

Collectors interested in purchasing the comics can contact David H. Pierce for ordering details at david@davideo.tv. All books shipped by Davideo Productions will be preserved in acid-free archival bags and boards for serious collectors.
