So, who is going to purchase the FIFTIETH signed copy (of FIFTY numbered editions) of John Dixon's Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor: A Second Volume? Yes, that's right! Only ONE signed Edition of Volume Two remains! And it costs no more than the regular edition of $35 (which includes Postage and Packing to anywhere in Australia)....
Signing the Second Volume is Cover Artist Michael Dutkiewicz, his brother Dr Adam Jan Dutkiewicz who designed the Back Cover, and someone named Nat Karmichael. Just remember (if you haven't been paying attention), John Dixon (the Writer and Artist of Air Hawk) has NOT signed this Second Edition, as he is presently UNABLE TO SIGN due to his illness. To avail yourself of this loveliness, head on over to the Store tab on this web-site...or simply click here, if you are worried about GETTING LOST.
IF you would like what is now becoming a RARE COLLECTOR'S ITEM - a copy of Volume One that IS signed by JOHN DIXON (when he was able to sign), simply ask Nat Karmichael nicely, pay him the regular cost of the first edition ($45, which includes postage and packing anywhere in Australia), and he may send you a copy. Also signing Volume One is Cover Artist Eddie Campbell, and Cover Designer (and modern Air Hawk logo letterer) Michal Dutkiewicz. And if you ask really nicely, Nat may even offer you Volume One and Two together for an extra special price. But you MUST ASK and you MUST ASK NICELY, because that will make this world a NICER PLACE...
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.
