Just a very quick update. Exciting news! Monty Wedd's NED KELLY (after a frustrating delay) is now at the printer! (The delay was caused with some last minute cover art adjustments that were required by the printer. The dust jacket has now been finalised, and a reduced copy can be seen below,) The Second Volume of John Dixon's AIR HAWK and the FLYING DOCTOR is also at the printer! ROB FELDMAN's Cartoons, Comics, and Cows in Cars is (almost) ready for the printer!
Rob and I are off to the Australian Cartoonists' Association's annual get-together (this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, in beautiful Coffs Harbour) where we will make some final tweaks to Rob's book. Rob has asked that you look out for his soon-to-be-launched website (see above), where you can take a sneak peek at some of the interior pages to his book!
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.
