Support the Caravan of Comics 2013 [UPDATED 22/04/13]

Our friend and professional colleague Bruce Mutard is going on the road in this year's Caravan of Comics – a Melbourne based travelling comics contingent that is about to hit Canada and USA with their books.

Bruce emailed us with the following info:

You may have heard whispers in the wind that a submersible Winnebago was about to depart these antipodean shores for the northern New World. Yes, the proof is now in the pudding of mixed metaphors: the Caravan of Comics hits the road again for 2013. Myself, Mirranda Burton, Scarlette Baccini, Marijka Gooding, Patrick Alexander, Gregory Mackay and Dan Hayward will be hitting the Toronto Comics Arts Festival, Librarie Drawn & Quarterly in Montreal, Fantagraphics Bookshop in Seatle and myself to the International Comic Arts Forum in May. We are taking our comics,, the Graphic Novels! Melbourne! documentary and the idea of Australian comics, to show them we have the right stuff, we have the left stuff, we have the STUFF that comics are made of. Which is of course, the stuff of life. 

This is a deserved and worthy bunch of comics creators so we encourage you to stop by the campaign and support it if you can. I (julie) am about to pledge $40 for The Sound and Vision Book Club reward. Please head to 
For lots of info, please head to www.caravanofcomics.comCaravan of Comics is also on Facebook: (to be updated very soon) and on Twitter:

CAMPAIGN NOW CLOSED! Over $6000 was raised.
