Cartoonist Ted Richards Fights Cancer with GoFundMe and Art Sale

Five decades ago, cartoonist Ted Richards fought Disney as part of the notorious "Air Pirates" Underground Comix collective. Now he is fighting small cell lung cancer and has started a GoFundMe campaign to offset his medical, legal, and living expenses for his family since he is unable to work. Richards is also selling some of his last remaining published original art featuring his classic characters "The Forty Year Old Hippie" and "Dopin' Dan".

The Ted Richards GoFundMe campaign can be reached at:

The Giant Book of Smudge (Promotion Video #2)

Second promotion video for The Giant Book of Smudge, a 304 page treasury.
In 2012, Sam Backhouse, 21 years old, set out on a journey still being travelled. What was at first a little book intended as being a present for his mother’s birthday, grew to becoming an impressive 22 books released between 2012 and 2021. And only until now has such a vast collection been whittled down into a treasury featuring what Sam considers his favourite works from this current ten year adventure still in the making.
The book features some new never before seen art too.
Join the loons from Smudgetown, nestled in a Baxendaleian, Crumbian, Lynchian, Sheltonesque and of course Backhouseian landscape.
Pour yourself a glass of your fancy when Supermarketman destroys another supermarket criminal. Loudly tut when Evil Olive, a cross between Minnie the Minx and Hannibal Lecter, is up to no good in town again. Sympathise with the struggles of a stressed snowman. Hold a decade in your hands.
Fantastic offer.. was ten grand but now yours for five hundredth of that original price.

A fantastic list of all stories so far in the old-school styled science fiction anthology comic book series 'Retro Sci-Fi Tales'

From DARK OZ - www.darkoz.com.au

Here is a complete contents list of all the stories so far in Retro Sci-Fi Tales - issues 1 to 9

For anyone who's interested, this lists every story, shows recurring characters, and which issues have continuing serials (two or more episodes/issues).

NOTE - the recurring characters/stories in 'Retro Sci-Fi Tales' are: 'Captain Ice', 'Bruno & Maggie', 'Marilyn', 'Kat Knightly', and 'Sam Sparrow & Misty Swanston'.

Issue #10 will be out in a few months, a perfect jumping on point for New Readers (as any and all previous 'serials' were wrapped up by issue #9).

I haven't listed the creators names (x60 creators featured) or the 'cover' and many 'pin-up' pages - this is just a short easy to follow list of the stories and characters.

Enjoy, and be sure to collect every issue - an amazing showcase of talent, great fun old-school style sci-fi action stories, bumper edition Australian anthology comic books.
