Ordinarily I do not like to "plug" books without first reading them, mostly so I can offer some constructive criticism and give you, dear Reader, my honest opinion about the product concerned. Being familiar with both Dillon and Ben's work (not to mention the quality of publication that fellow-publisher Milk Shadow Books put out), I have no doubt that these will be worth your time and money. (I shall be purchasing both books myself, so if you would like to hear the final verdict, I shall review them...in due course, as I say, when I have more time!
Ben Constantine is a Brisbane-boy, and it seems just a lovely co-incidence that just a little while ago I was taking about his fellow-RAVE contributor Glenn Mander's book on this site! I have no doubt Ben's work will be worth picking up. Ben's book (with a copy of the cover above to the right) is called Squirt-Stone, the Collected Plump Oyster Volume 1. I have been able to read an art preview of the book, and Recommend it!

Dillon has had his artwork with a rock and roll theme (A Brush with Darkness) previously published by Milk Shadow Books. If Da n Dill: The Showbag Years is produced to the same standard (and there would be no reason to suggest that it won't!), then this will be another Aussie Comic book I can only Highly Recommend.
So, if you can get down to All Star Comics (Level 1, 410 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne) at 2 p.m. on October 12th, please do so! Both Dillon and Ben (and publisher James Andre) will be there to sign, sell and talk about their books. Please ensure James keeps at least one copy of each aside for me!
