Don't you get just a little bit jealous that the Comicoz printer delivers with the pre-newsstand release order ON TIME and EVERY TIME? Thanks, Mr King! And the photograph does not do the wonderful wrap-around cover artwork of David Follett justice -- the glossy cover really brings out the fabulous artwork! Subscribers will have copies posted to them today (if I can get organised) or Monday at the latest. If you are not a subscriber, you will have to wait until the newsstand release of early January before you'll be able to get your hands on a copy! (Click here for a $28 subsciption for the next four issues.) Alternatively, copies will be available from tomorrow and all weekend at Brisbane's Supernova Pop Culture Expo.... Come and say "Hullo!" at the Australian Cartoonists' Association's stand! Appearing with me will be Gary Swamp Clark (not Sunday), Jules Weirdo Faber, Martin Woody Robinson and Phil No Middle Name Judd. It's okay, Phil, I don't have a middle name either....
Comicoz is Nat Karmichael's publishing imprint. Nat is committed to preserving a permanent collection of Australian comic and comic strips. He feels that there is a need to recognise comics' contribution to and depiction of Australian culture.
Since 2011, Nat has self-published over twelve comic-related books and was Publisher-Editor of
Oi Oi Oi! -- the last series of nationally-distributed comic books of original stories to appear on Australian newsstands. He is a member of the Australian Cartoonists Association and edited the Association's journal Inkspot for 14 issues from late 2015. For numerous years he was the Lead Judge in the Ledger of Honour Awards for the Comic Arts Awards of Australia (formerly the Ledgers). These days Nat dreams of retiring from his occupation as a Clinical Nurse in the Psychiatric Emergency Centre in Queensland's largest public hospital, so that he can spend more time with his long-suffering wife and their six children and fourteen grandchildren. And perhaps publish some more comic-related books.
Comicoz acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay respects to elders, past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.
