Australia’s long comic history is shaded by the popularity of comics in the US, Japan and Europe but now, with the popularity of comic narrative at an all-time high, artists and writers in Australia are experiencing a ‘renaissance’, finding work with the biggest US companies.

Publishing companies in Australia are picking up steam, and there is a groundswell of interest in ‘zines and self-published comics.

Join Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine), Bruce Mutard (Fabliaux press) and Naja Later (Women in Comics Festival) with host Peter Pascoe (Bendigo Record Comic and Toy Fair), as they discuss the Australian Comic Book Renaissance
