Win a copy of From Earth's End. The Best of NZ Comics.

The first major book dedicated to New Zealand cartoonists, and a well researched celebration of New Zealand comics and graphic novels.

New Zealand has a rich history of comics and cartooning and has produced award-winning, internationally recognised creators such as Dylan Horrocks and Roger Langridge. The very active community of respected writers, artists and designers is becoming more prominent, and gaining mainstream recognition: Ant Sang's best-selling Shaolin Burning and Chris Grosz's New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards finalist Kimble Bent being recent examples. 

From Earth's End: The Best of New Zealand Comics reveals, for the first time, the history of one of the country's most enduring, and subversive artforms. Discover the origins of New Zealand comics, from the pioneering local cartoonists of the early twentieth century, to the rebirth of local comics in the 1970s, through to the bestselling graphic novels of today. The collection showcases comics from 30 of New Zealand's best cartoonists, ranging from internationally acclaimed creators, to emerging new talents.

Handsomely designed by the award-winning Alan Deare, and lavishly illustrated, it's a 'must-have' for every art lover's bookshelf.

    I still remember the commando comics of my childhood. Keen to get a compilation of the best of kiwi. I have met Trace Hodgson and he is funny as well as being a fantastic artist. Now its the cartoon in the daily paper - I'm really missing out on comic fun!
