Comicoz Logo revisited...
Just thought I would use the COMICOZ Logo and insert it on the Blog. Let me know your thoughts! It was designed in the early 1990s and has only been used on The Wally Lewis Story (1993) - but please correct me if I am wrong, Mind you, the only person who could tell me if that fact is incorrect is the designer....fellow Queenslander Jason Paulos! I shall resist any temptation to talk of any football match this evening, although it is foremost in my mind. (Yes, I have a Life outside of my Family, Work and Comics, you know...!!)
Yesterday, with the help and artistic direction of both daughter Natalie Mahal and wife Carlene, I was finalising the Letter of Thanks that are part of the Rewards for all Pledges to our (still on-going, but presently static) Pozible Campaign. Just remember, if you have not put in a Pledge (see by clicking here!) you can still do so! Extra Money will be used on making Ned Kelly even greater! (As I said before by looking into the possibility of making an electronic version available in the future....) The Letters will go out later in the week (as there are still some addresses to be obtained).
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.
