This posting is for all the loyal readers of this Comicoz Blog who do not rely on Facebook postings or don't follow me on Twitter to learn of the latest news. You are now in the know, with this exclusive bit of information!
Comicoz is presently actively seeking printing quotes to reproduce this graphic novel: Joe Shuster. In the next week Comicoz will be signing a contract with the copyright holders to release this book exclusively to the Australian market. The book will be initially released as a numbered limited edition high-quality hardcover book, and later offered as a trade paperback.
This graphic novel is Comicoz' first foray into an international product. It has been written by New York-based Julian Voloj and illustrated by talented Sydney-sider Thomas Campi. But enough talking from me: it's time you read some samples pages from the book. Feel free to share this web-site, as you tell all your friends you were the First to know...
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.
