It is now over thirty years since new Air Hawk adventures appeared in the daily newspapers, and in May 2013 it will be the fifty year anniversary of the daily version's first appearance. This Passing of Time has made me realise that there is now a generation of Australian comic book Fans who know nothing of this Classic Australian Newspaper Strip. I think I have been focused for too long on a bottom line that the Air Hawk book needs to run at a profit in order that it continue publication. The point is, Comicoz now has a publishing-printing arrangement with Lightning Source and print runs can be limited to whatever is needed in the marketplace. Look, if 100 people want to see further Volumes of the book, then Comicoz should be printing 100 copies of the book... The need to have the collected adventures out there, even in limited quantities, should override the economics of the venture.
On John Dixon's 84th birthday, Comicoz is happy to announce that the next volume of Air Hawk shall soon re-commence. And if that means only 100 people jump for joy, at least that is 100 happier people in the world. Count me as one of them: my batteries are re-charged! I am sure John Dixon is another!
Happy Birthday, John: Air Hawk is coming back...!!
