A Review of Issue Two of Oi Oi Oi!
I know many of this Blog's readers are looking forward to reading the story about this, what has been described as "the world's funniest cartoon"...
And the story WILL BE first written about here, on this Blog. But not today. At the moment, I am working on developing more cartoons and comic-related books for 2015....as well as Oi Oi Oi! Number Four. So, while you are patiently waiting, why not buy someone a copy of our latest issue (Number Two) for someone this Christmas? Philip Bentley has said some wonderfully nice things about it on Matt Emery's Pikitia Press site, and you can read all about it if you click here...
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.
Since 2011, Nat has self-published over twelve comic-related books and was Publisher-Editor of
Oi Oi Oi! -- the last series of nationally-distributed comic books of original stories to appear on Australian newsstands. He is a member of the Australian Cartoonists Association and edited the Association's journal Inkspot for 14 issues from late 2015. For numerous years he was the Lead Judge in the Ledger of Honour Awards for the Comic Arts Awards of Australia (formerly the Ledgers). These days Nat dreams of retiring from his occupation as a Clinical Nurse in the Psychiatric Emergency Centre in Queensland's largest public hospital, so that he can spend more time with his long-suffering wife and their six children and fourteen grandchildren. And perhaps publish some more comic-related books.
Comicoz acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay respects to elders, past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.
