‘Straya, F*** Yeah Mate! Bazza The Bogan Barbarian Review

There are only a few comics that I can classify as bodaciously Australian comic books. These are stories where they are 100% Australian when you squeeze every once.

The Devil’s Toilet #1 Review: Everyone Poops

Everyone Poops. That little phrase is both a fairly self-evident fact and the title of an iconic children’s educational book originating in Japan. So iconic is the US translation in fact, that it has often found its way into that barometer of American culture – the sitcom. So yes – everybody needs to attend the …
