There is more than Football happening in Sydney at this time of the year. As an example...
Bruce told me in an email that "this exhibition is the biggest work I’ve put out into the public since The Sacrifice and it’s actually a comic, but it's one you walk through. There is no page one, so [you] start with whatever attracts you first and start reading. Go at your own pace, double back, move around the 3D panels, however you want. That’s the point of it in many ways.
"Yes, yes, the really big work I’ve been creating is the follow-up to The Sacrifice and it’s well under way, but the above is the culmination of more than 2 years study and research at Monash University for my Masters (done over more than 5 years). It’s one of the many reasons for the delay.
"So, it’d be great to see you at the opening night, or at one of many events I’ll be doing during Comic Con-versation over that week."
So there! Consider that your personal Invitation! Go and then tell me how good it was, and how I will wished I had gone, instead of yelling "Go Broncos!" in front of a television screen....!
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.
