Scarlette Buccini calls herself a 'scientist, musician, big sister and cartoonist'. Although these days, I would have to say, she is concentrating on being a musician. Her band, Dear Plastic, has just (three days ago) released their first album "The Thieves are Babes" on iTunes. (Here's the link!) Scarlette's comic book work is reasonably well-known within the Melbourne comic community. Her zombie girl character Zombolette, (with pet guinea pig Cameron), has been compiled in the one volume from fellow Australian comic book publisher Milk Shadow Books (click here for the link). However, when Scarlette said she had a story "too short to publish" and that she was "not really sure what to do with it"... well, how could I resist??
I am pleased to announce that, because both of these stories read better in colour, both of these stories have been printed in full glorious colour! That's right! Sixteen pages of Oi Oi Oi!'s Second Issue -- out this Thursday, in newsagents all around this country -- are in colour! How can you not support these fine Australian Artists and Cartoonists?!
