And we’re back! Thank you to all our readers for your understanding.

April has been a busy month for both comic and life stuff! Lots of moving, house-hunting, renovating going on. However, we also had an amazing time at Oz Comic-Con Adelaide! We shared a table with our friends from Hail Comic for the second time, and were lucky enough to have some amazing comic creators such as Mike Cooper and Shane W. Smith as our Artist Alley row mates for the weekend.

On the Saturday afternoon we were involved in a panel, along with Miranda and Rosanna (from Hail). The panel, entitled “Writing to Women: Drawing Comics for a Female Audience” was a great opportunity for us to discuss how gender representations influenced our comic creation process. We were surprised and delighted to see such a great turn-out for the panel, and we received some lovely feedback. It is endlessly amazing to me when someone approaches our table, after seeing our panel, having tracked us down to chat and buy a copy of Heart of Millyera!

Oz Comic-Con also saw the launch a brand-spanking new, one-shot comic!

Jana and I are thrilled to announce that earlier in the year we were selected to take part in the Banksia Project mentoring program for minority comic creators! The program is a partnership between Petrie Press and Supanova Pop Culture Expo. Over the next 6-7 months, Jana and I will be coached by Ledger Award winning comic creator Alisha Jade. Our first finished product from the mentorship is entitled Great Beasts, and it will be for sale next week at the Adelaide Comic & Toy Fair.

If you want to come along and grab a copy of the Great Beasts mini comic, or if you want to pick up a copy of Heart of Millyera: Prelude, then please head along this Saturday 22 April, at the Christian Brothers College, Adelaide. The fair starts from 9:30am! Hope to see you there ;-)
