One thing that must be a potential pain to Pledgers to Pozible Campaigns, is the number of projects that do not deliver on their promises. Sad to relate, Comicoz was one of those. With all the best of intentions, the Ned Kelly book was proposed for a pre-Christmas delivery...and here we are past the middle of February...
Anyway, as promised last posting, Dear Reader, is the news you have been waiting for....Ned Kelly, Narrated and Illustrated by Monty Wedd is due to arrive in Brisbane on March 2nd. The distribution to all Pledgers will take first priority, and all books ordered will be in the mail by March 17th. It really will be a book worth waiting for!
Other great news: Dennis Jones and Associates have expressed an interest in distributing the book throughout Australian and New Zealand bookshops. The contract is to be signed this week! So, please, if you have not ordered your book through this site or if you are not able to get to one of the Supanova Conventions throughout 2014, race down to your local bookstore and ask them to order the book for you!
Details of Book Launches (always fun affairs!) will be posted on this site as soon as details are known! Look out for some stories in the media too! The first to run an review of the book is slated to be in The Review section of the Weekend Australian in April.
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.
