Just before tomorrow's article appears in the Brisbane Courier-Mail, I thought I would just show you, dear reader, how Novella Distribution, is promoting my Comicoz books (see below). Great work, Rowena, Georgina and Team! Of course, readers of this blog know how to obtain copies: simply hit the "Store! Order Here!" tab above to be transported to all the titles, including Graeme Cliffe's latest From 'Sunbeams' to Sunset: The Rise and Fall of the Australian Comic (1924 to 1965).
...acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to elders past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Australian peoples.
Over the past decade (2011 - 2020) Nat has self-published ten comic-related books and was Publisher-Editor of Oi Oi Oi! - the last nationally-distributed comic book of original comics stories to appear on Australian newsstands. He edited Inkspot, the journal of the Australian Cartoonists Association for 14 issues from late 2015 to 2019 and is a current member of the ACA's Committee. In his spare time, he is a husband, a father (to six) and grandfather (to fourteen), and works in the Psychiatric Emergency Centre in Queensland's largest public hospital.
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.
