Limited stock! Be quick! AUSTRALIA! An Australian comic anthology...
How did this volume come to be? In early 2016, a select group of Australian cartoonists and artists was invited to contribute to this anthology. All artists freely donated their time and talents in contributing to this project. The theme chosen was ‘Australia’. The only limitation was that the page count could not exceed five pages. The idea was to raise funds for an Australian charity, beyondblue. Sadly, no book distributor was able to found to get the book out there for the general public...
This 92 page, hardcover high-quality book was NEVER available in bookstores. Besides clearly illustrating what an amazing talent pool of creative artists and cartoonists were working in this medium in Australia around this time, one of the contributors inside the volume went on to win an Award for their work! Glen Lumsden's contribution ("Kelly's Revenge") won him the 2016 Stanley Award for Comic Book Artist at the Australian Cartoonists Association's annual ceremony. In fact, this book and this website is the ONLY place you can find this Award-winning work!
Rob Feldman's contribution (a coloured re-working of his Oi Oi Oi! Special Nostalgia Edition) ensured he was a Finalist in the same Award, and both Ian C. Thomas and Dani Vittz' work were also nominated. The end result? This book is a pleasing array of different art styles and stories that should keep the even the most finicky of comic readers satisfied.
NOTE: Some of the stories within this volume have been written for a more mature readership. Persons with a delicate nature are urged to be selective about reading some of these stories. NOTE TOO: The cover art shown was not the final art chosen for the book, although it is very similar.
