The White Suit

There's me and Dur-e Dara, her regaling the crowd at the Tango8 launch with great words about the vital importance of love, and of food, and of comics in Australia, preparatory to an improvised beer-glass-and-spoon percussion piece which would officially launch the book into the world.

And there it is, the face that launched 1000 comics.  And the suit that he did it in.


Thanks to Arts Victoria for the funding.  Thanks to Anita Bacic for the cover.  Thanks to Jen Jewel Brown for the publicity.  And thanks to Justin Caleo for the book design.

And most of all, thanks to the 70 contributors for entrusting their work to Cardigan Comics.


It really IS a great book.  But don't take my word for it.  Buy a copy and read it for yourself.

I'd heard the rumours... the pics confirm. The Tango launch was an artist and fashion statement.
How fitting to be wearing a "Magical Mystery Tour" suit for the new Tango.
Looks gr8, still half way through it (at 200+ pages, it ain't no light weight comic book).
Congrats Bernard, you've done it again...
as I've said before
"you're a bloody legend" (and I mean it in the nicest possible way.
