Can Yalcinkaya

My recent peer-reviewed, academic comic “Homoti: The Turkish Gay E.T. Remake”, published in the Sequentials journal, is about an unofficial, queer, Turkish remake of E.T. (Steven Spielberg, 1982) and brings together several academic and personal interests and fascinations of mine: cultural and political history of Turkey, B movies, remakes, gender theory, political activism, and autobiographical/underground comix tropes, in an attempt to develop a personal style in comics-based research.

Mama Linh's Family BusinessComic Sans AnthologyShort StoryAll Ages

Matt Huynh

The story was told to me by chef Peter Wu in an interview with him and his mother, Xiao Linh Meng. It's about the tensions of growing up as a second generation migrant of a refugee mother working tirelessly in a suburban noodle house, how Peter had developed an independent interest in entering the industry with his own trendy bar, and how his entrepreneurship and desire to share cuisine from his heritage led him to working closer than he'd expected with his mother, appreciating her work and innovating with her recipes for a new audience in their new home in Australia.

With this anecdote, I wanted to discuss how second generation migrant children negotiate tensions between their ethnic history and their experience in a new culture - how they balance authenticity and loyalty to traditions with a need to transform and innovate to connect with a new community in a new culture with different languages and tastes.

In the year 2121, Earth is finally free of War thanks to the incredible power of remote piloted super-human androids known as "Tinsuits". Since the Great Peace, the Tinsuits were decommissioned and exiled off world to Mars for the safety of all humanity. Now, the Tinsuits are piloted to compete in the most popular television show ever, the Crimson Trials, a battle royal of survival where one winner takes all. But the celebrity Tinsuit avatars lead much different lives than their human pilots back on Earth, and no one is who they seem. Staying in character may be harder than staying alive.

CorioReading VictoriaDigital only / Webcomic 

Eloise Grills, writer and artist
Veronica Sullivan, editor

The Shell Refinery, now named Viva, looms over Corio.
My paternal uncle who lived with my paternal grandmother in Lara for his entire life is one of the last of a generation to take a job there and never leave it. My maternal grandmother, Grandy, lives in commission housing in Corio. She volunteers with Greening Australia, conserving Limeburners Lagoon, a significant tidal wetlands that lives in the shadow of the refinery.
This comic encompasses illustrations, photographs, maps and ecological data, taking as its focus the land which splits Lara from Corio. Weaving together parallel narratives of my uncle's lifelong employment at the refinery, and my grandmother's environmentalism, the work of Greening Australia and the perspective of a member of the Wathaurong Collective who do work in the area, this piece examines the way in which intergenerational attitudes and beliefs contradict one another in our shaping of the land. Set against a backdrop of dying industry and flagging corporate responsibility, this piece asks whether the small efforts we make to clean up the mess of the past can be enough. It was first published by Reading Victoria, online in October 2018.

Sexy Female MurderessesGlom PressGraphic Novel, Comic BookAdult Content for mature readers.

Eloise Grills, writer and artist

Like a smoke alarm that plays “I Believe In Miracles” by Hot Chocolate while your house burns down.

Like a greased up stripper pole for use in emergencies, only.

They say (I say) that death is life cumming, and death by a sexy female murderess is the female climax: slippery, elusive and by the time it finally comes you’ll wish you were never born. Sexy Female Murderesses is a warning to those who would never heed it anyway, and a childlike joy for others, like floating your rubber duck down a river of blood.

Grills slices up figures of history, autobiography and speech, in a delightful springtime bloodbath for famously evil and evilly famous women—dead or alive, young and old. Burn your house down, poison your whole family, shoot your lovers point blank: just read this book before you do.

Rainy Days is the fourth issue of Metcop Wonderland* and, hoo boy, things are getting dark on the Hurstbridge line. Our heroes all deal with their changing circumstances in different ways. Shane takes an unexpected nap, Billy lifts with his legs, and Scarlet's attempt to use a chainsaw ends spectacularly badly. Released March 2018.

Clocks marks the sixth issue (and oh my word, the halfway mark) of Metcop Wonderland*. Released in October 2018, Clocks bears the unique distinction of being named after a Melbourne institution that no longer exists. Alan doesn't know that though, and finds himself beguiled by the prospect of a cheap steak sandwich. Billy takes a short and explosive trip to the underworld, and Shane dithers. Because that's what Shane does best.

Daniel Pollock, classifieds submissions. Gavin Robson, classifieds submissions. Kurt Robson, classifieds submissions. Natalie Michelle Watson, everything else 🙂

'Drongo' is a serial variety comic by Melbourne illustrator Natalie Michelle Watson. It is the embodiment of 90s Australian nostalgia; think Oddbodz, Peter Combe, Agro, and stuffy family road trips with no air-conditioning to see the Big Banana over a long weekend. Many of the comics are deeply personal, reflecting Natalie's own ideas about the past, present, and future of the current generation, combined with her own life experiences. The comics in the 'Drongo' also touch on the social effects of gentrification and globalisation, as well as the future of politics in Australia and the world. Most of it's just for a laugh, though.

Iggy Dido Jae, writer, penciller, inker, colourist

Chapter 1 KOMPLETT" follows Zach Weissermann, a 21-year-old student from the deserts of Ground Zero, who moves to the city of Eschva. Zach finds the move difficult, which is not made easier by the number of new faces. But, one in particular is very familiar.
