Sleuth (series)

Sleuth is an ongoing series of comics, since 2012 right up to TODAY, which branch across a few different “mediums” – zines, exhibitions, performances, animations, comics made for the wall, poster comics, paintings, short works in literary magazines etc. It loosely investigates the current situation of Australian spirituality … and what it looks like today.
