Look!! This lost little comic of mine has found a home on the digisphere … indeed it’s on a map! Which is nice, because it, unto itself, maps out a route taken by a large female across the island of Tassie and onto the mainland. This piece is part of the ongoing Sleuth series … there will also be a new exhibition of Sleuth in Launceston in April – opening at Sawtooth ARI on April 4th. WOOHOO!!! In fact – the Waldheimerin will be at the exhibition.

The Sleuth-world continues to grow and grow with this new story – Sleuth: Somethin’s Rotten on the Apple Isle!
It’s part of the new Tascomic series curated by Josh called DOWN THERE where there’ll be a different artist making each issue – up to four times per year. Part of what Josh likes to call – the comics Rennaissance of the Southern Ocean.
This issue is from Josh’s Sleuth series of stories – which is a bunch of rambling, multi-format comics that vaguely resemble a theme on where the modern Australian psyche has gotten itself to … wherever the hell that is.
Some new characters – including Reverend Browning (who was a real bloke from Cressy in Northern Tasmania).
Some old faves – the potty-mouthed Pademelon comes off the gallery wall and bounces into your cute and cuddly hearts in comic-book form, Andrew “Poppy” Harwood makes a return with an all-new jug of Boags … in this all-Tassie extravaganza.
BONUSSSSS – an extra story with the giant Amos Waistcoat meeting up with anthropologist extraordinaire Teddy Strehlow out in the desert somewhere.
The first in the series (each made by a different artist) will be by Josh – a new comic in his ongoing Sleuth series. Here’s a rough drawing for a new character – Revered Browning.
