October Roundup

by | Oct 31, 2022 | monthly roundup | 0 comments

We’re coming close to the end of the year. In a way we’re starting to wrap up, but on the other hand we’ve just announced our second webinar and we’re thrilled!

For this webinar we have managed to gather four really amazing speakers who will be discussing how comics and manga nurture and inspire reading and creativity. It may be wrong for us to say it, but this is definitely a webinar you don’t want to miss. All the information about the webinar and the free registration details are here. Make sure you register and we look forward to seeing you there.

November will also be the last session for this year’s Graphic Novel Club. We invite you all to attend with some tasty food at hand, after all, we’re discussing graphic novels that centre on food. As always, we have three suggested graphic novels to read but we look forward to hear what other graphic novels that centre on food you recommend. All the Graphic Novel Club information and the free registration details are here.




  • Melbourne’s Reading book shop has a podcast series and they’ve recently published the first (of we hope many) episodes focusing on comics hosted by one of Australia’s greatest champions of the medium, Bernard Caleo. In this first episode of The Comics Question, Bernard interviews Mirranda Burton, who has just been awarded the Readings 2022 Young Adult Award for Underground. 

  • Love & Rockets is one of the greatest comic book series to come out of the U.S. and now there’s a whole documentary dedicated to it free to watch on YouTube. You can watch it here
