On behalf of Comicoz and all comic book Fans, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Rob Feldman and his extended family on the very recent loss of Rob's Father. It was only last February that Rob had to farewell his Mother. (Said Rob: "My dear Dad had a great innings - 93 years - and he's off to join Mum for some serious partying".) Rob is well aware that many comic book Fans are looking forward to reading his book "Cartoons, Comics and Cows In Cars", so he has passed the book's files on to me (Nat Karmichael) to assist in getting them completed. I trust that all Ned Kelly Pledgers and all Rob Feldman Fans will join me in sending our thoughts and condolences to Rob during this time of his and his family's personal sadness.
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 has been 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.
