I've just got the Media Release written, and am preparing to send it (with a preview copy of the First Issue of Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!) to as many media organisations that I can think of! Looks like this little Labour of Love is all ready for the Newsagents next Thursday!
Yesterday, Integrated Distribution Solutions (our Distributor) and Comicoz agreed on the allocations: three copies will be sent to 1,655 Newsagents around this country. So, if your local is not stocking it, ask 'em: "Why Not?!"
If you click here you can see the promotional spiel that has been put together that the newsagents will read...
...acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to elders past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Australian peoples.
Over the past decade (2011 - 2020) Nat has self-published ten comic-related books and was Publisher-Editor of Oi Oi Oi! - the last nationally-distributed comic book of original comics stories to appear on Australian newsstands. He edited Inkspot, the journal of the Australian Cartoonists Association for 14 issues from late 2015 to 2019 and is a current member of the ACA's Committee. In his spare time, he is a husband, a father (to six) and grandfather (to fourteen), and works in the Psychiatric Emergency Centre in Queensland's largest public hospital.
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.
