A stint of night duty (where I do nothing but work and sleep) coupled with a computer glitch...crash...what-ever you want to call it, has prevented me from taking Ned Kelly, Air Hawk and Rob Feldman's Masterpiece any further in recent days. And, I must confess, I have also been side-tracked reading some great new Aussie comics. You see, I am fast discovering that much Australasian product is NOT available in the newsagencies. Much Good Stuff (and some ordinary work too) is available on the internet.
It does help if your server is working, and now that my computer is going again, I can point you in the direction of some of the Really Good Stuff. If you are one of the few people who has not read John Dixon, Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor (and if you are reading this Blog and you have not - Shame!), then I would like to share this link with you. For some more cracking good reads and more information about Pikitia Press Click Here. If those sites do not completely satisfy you, you are a difficult person to please! But more of the Really Good Stuff is also available at Milk Shadow Books, and you can find more about them by Clicking Here. That should tide you over until at least until Easter! Just in time for you to tune back here, to see what is doing here at Comicoz....
