Typhoon Tommy by Barrie Earl
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


THE LONG-LOST AUSTRALIAN ADVENTURE COMIC STRIP CLASSIC IS NOW AVAILABLE IN A FULL-COLOR GRAPHIC NOVEL EDITION! The newspaper comics are in rapid decline...comics are very much a sub-culture - no big deal - but in my boyhood, before TV, newspapers were the main entertainment. Two papers every day, even on Sunday, and the comics...Flash Gordon, Tarzan, Red Ryder, Superman...a lot of great Aussie strips. Jolliffe did a few, Carl Lyon did some good ones, Syd Nicholls did Middy Malone and The Phantom Pirate. But the American stuff dominated...The best newspaper adventure strips are long gone. The Phantom still appears but the rest are lacklustre gag strips. The comics, adventure wise are finished. Why...? Once everybody bought newspapers to find the news, the real news. Newspapers now reflect the media bosses' views and are slanted. Although the population increases newspaper sales fall...people who want to know the truth are shrinking in number..
