The Blood & Thunder Anthology showcases some of the best comic illustration that Australia and New Zealand have to offer. Combining specialist printing with great artwork, the second issue will include 18 local artists, such as Lachlan Conn (Punkin Moon), Miranda Burton (Hidden) and Simon Hanselmann (Megg & Mogg). And it’s ready to go to print.That’s why we’re asking people to get involved.


The anthology will be printed on a Risograph machine with digitally printed inserts. More impressive still, it will feature intricate letterpress and foil-stamped covers, designed by illustration star Lachlan Conn. All up, it’s an expensive, labour-intensive process, but the results promise to be fantastic. Using different inks and paper stock across 230 pages, this vibrant publication will build on the unique format of the first issue to truly be a beautiful collection. Edited by artist and illustrator Leigh Rigozzi, Blood & Thunder #2 will be printed in a limited run of 300 copies. 


The collection features work by:

Michael Fikaris
Tim Danko
Kieran Mangan
Gregory Mackay
Mandy Ord
Jo Waite
Neale Blanden
Trevor Dickinson
James Flaxman
Andrew Fulton
Michael Hawkins
Sam Wallman
and others
