Arriving from the printer this morning: the proof copy of the Fifth Issue of Oi Oi Oi! to be exclusively released to coincide with the Copier Jam! Exhibition of comic and zine art at the Childers Festival in almost one month's time. The details are all above!
Comicoz is highlighting original artworks and prints from our First and Second Issues. Here's a chance to see (and in some cases buy) original artworks by Anton Emdin and Tony Thorne, or Limited Edition prints of works by SCAR Studios, Rob Feldman and Lesley Vamos.
Inside this print edition you will see some great Australian comic work by Chiara Arena (who drew the fabulous cover) and Ryan McDonald-Smith (who added the visual effects), as well as some great Australian comic stories by Alisha Jade, David Piper and Ian Thomas. This comic will be available at the special price of only $5.00. A special Guest Editorial by Copier Jam! curator Jeremy Staples is also included in the comic. Of course, if you just can't make it to Childers, you can always ensure you obtain your copy of Oi Oi Oi! by taking out a four issue subscription. All the details are on our Store Tab (above)...!!
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.
