Junky Comics (click here for a link), has also become a hub for Brisbane comics artists to connect and share their work. Junky has become known for its stock of great alternative titles selectively imported from niche publishers abroad as well as its wide selection of local mini comics and zines, including Phatsville Comix.
Phatsville Comix began in Brisbane in 2002 when five animation students worked together to create a comic book free of editorial constraints and economic imperatives. What was born of this group was an underground comic with a punk rock aesthetic. Since its inception Phatsville Comix has attracted an audience that hungers for the surreal and offbeat stories not offered by mainstream companies. Click here for a link to their Facebook page....
Some of Australia’s most talented comic artists have contributed to the comic over the subsequent years, showing the respect and broad appeal that the book has garnered. The open door policy to submissions has also meant that many young artists have had a chance to see their work in print for the first time.
