I've been busy lately with a lot of family matters. My baby brother has turned 50 years 'old' (on September 21st), and Carlene and I have been blessed by visits from Cairns-based Elena (2 years old) and Kira (now 4 months old), along with their mum Rosanna. Lovely Little Lollie (who shared her 3rd birthday with us) also visited us in late August, and mum Lora introduced us to Adam, who proposed to Lora during their visit!
And while all of this is happening, the updating of this Comicoz web-site has just not happened! Yet many of you have been reading the site in increasing numbers.... So over the next few days, I plan to update you on what has been going on in the comics world, and more specifically the Comicoz world. Thanks for reading, for coming back to read some more, and thanks to those who have placed orders for our First Volume.
