All of the Pozible Ned Kelly Supporters' will now have received or are about to receive the huge Comicoz package in the mail! Ned Kelly, Narrated and Illustrated by Monty Wedd has been lovingly produced and now must find other homes. I hope you can let me know your thoughts. And, for all present purchasers of the book, if you have a friend who would like to receive a copy of the book, let me know, and I will make a special offer for you!
In the meantime, in order to get the message out there, I have been pressing on with Ned Kelly's Media Releases. The wheels are in motion, and discussions are underway with a few organisations and retail outlets interested in holding a Book Launch. I will post any details when they become available.
From the first of March to today...not even four weeks. Ryan McDonald-Smith and I got together last week. Ryan worked on the interior pages to the Ned Kelly book, and we have now designed most of the interior pages to Oi Oi Oi! The page count has again increased (to 56 pages!) and Comicoz is now taking Pre-Publication Orders for the Oi Oi Oi! comic book! For only $7.50 a copy will be mailed to your address AS SOON AS COPIES ARRIVE FROM THE PRINTER! I cannot -- at this stage -- let you know WHEN this will be, but the goal is to have copies available for Sydney's Supanova.
Speaking of Supanova, Comicoz will have all books available for sale at the Gold Coast and Melbourne events. So, come along and say "Hullo Nat!" and meet and greet me at the Australian Cartoonists' Association's table. I am getting all the books ready today just for you... Click here for more details.
