Ubby’s underdogs: the legend of the Phonenix dragon by Brenton E McKenna

A Trilogy is Born

The legend of the Phoenix Dragon is unleashed!

Welcome to Australia’s first Indigenous graphic novel, Ubby’s Underdogs: The Legend of the Phoenix Dragon by Brenton E McKenna.

It is the late 1940s and Broome, a small pearling town in the heart of an ancient land, is still recovering from WW11. Ubby, a smart, street-wise Aboriginal girl, is the leader of a small rag-tag gang known as the ‘Underdogs’. Trying to make a name for the Underdogs, she meets Sai Fong, a Chinese girl just off the boat from Shanghai. From the moment Ubby and Sai Fong meet, their worlds collide as they find themselves thrown into a series of bizarre adventures full of myths and legends and everything from ancient mechanical demons to fantastic beasts — and secrets never before exposed. This is an epic tale that measures the limits of courage and friendship. Ubby’s Underdogs: The Legend of the Phoenix Dragon is storytelling on a grand scale that pulls its central characters from the unique multicultural town of Broome. It expertly draws in characters that have links to other worlds amidst a complex backdrop of Aboriginal and Chinese mythology (fictionalised). The Legend of the Phoenix Dragon is the first in the Ubby’s Underdogs trilogy.  New South Books

The first book in the long awaited trilogy, Ubby’s Underdogs.
