Just the other day, Graeme Cliffe and I spent some time signing the slips for Graeme's book, From 'Sunbeams' to Sunset: The Rise and Fall of the Australian Comic Book (1924 to 1965) for all the Kickstarter pledges....due to finish in a little over three day's time. If you click here, you'll be taken to the Kickstarter site....just in case you have not got around to it!
Then we headed off to Graeme's friends at Fats Comics in Annerley to sign the first sold copies of his book! I'll be dropping copies of the book to our new friends and distributors, Novella Distribution this Wednesday, so copies should be appearing in your local bookstore really soon.... Ask for it by name!
