It doesn't rain, but it sometimes POURS! And around Comicoz HQ, that's exactly how it is right NOW, with the arrival of not one, but TWO editions of OiOiOi! Which can only mean one thing -- the mowing won't get done this weekend!
Yes, the highly anticipated arrival of Oi Oi Oi!'s Seventh Issue has arrived! And with it, how could you have missed all the advance reviews and publicity surrounding Magpie (created by Andrez Bergen and Frantz Kantor)... the First Australian Superhero to appear in Australian newsagents for over twenty years. But wait! There's more! There's also the EXCLUSIVE arrival of Oi Oi Oi!'s Special Nostalgia Edition.
In case you are late to hear the news, the ONLY way you can get your hands on a copy of the Special Nostalgia Edition, is by taking out a Subscription. Click here for details. Tonight, I am madly packing copies that will go to all the Contributors to these fantastic editions. Tomorrow, I will begin packing copies for all the Subscribers! Is that you?

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.
