A note from Amber Carvan:

Hello Friends,

I am writing with exciting news – our book is out! For those of you who don’t know, Mandy Ord and I have been frantically drawing pictures over the past 12 months for a collaborative comic book. We got a grant to produce the book from the Australia Council (thanks Ozco!) and Pluto Press agreed to publish it (thanks Pluto!).

Anyway, as I mentioned, the book is now complete! Sixty (that’s right, sixty!) glorious pages of new comics, all collected together in a cute little yellow pocket book called “Brickdog and Other Stories” with an introduction by Eddie Campbell. How excitement!

You can get hold of a copy by

(a) going to your local bookshop (ask if they have it and if they don’t, ask

them to order it in for you), or

(b) visiting the publishers website at www.plutoaustralia.com and buying a

copy online. Here’s a direct link:


For those who might want to order a copy the details are as follows:
