Following the screening of the first episode of Comic Book Heroes, the Nick Dunlop documentary on the history of Australia’s Gestalt Comics, their early anthology Flinch has completely sold out at the publisher level. As such, Gestalt have announced that they are going back for a second printing, due out in September 2013. The new edition promised a few “adjustments and expansions” as well.
Flinch is a collection of engaging stories by established and emerging creators, all playing on their interpretation of ‘flinch’. From facing the ‘other’ within ourselves, to the tale of a prison inmate discovering what keeps him going, to a handful of stories exploring traditional (and non-traditional) hauntings alike.
Featuring work from Shaun Tan, Justin Randall, Terry Dowling, James Barclay, Tom Taylor, Colin Wilson, Christian Read, Bobby.N, Chris Bolton, Skye Ogden, Mel Tregonning, Tom Bonin, Andrew Richardson, Mark Welsh, Christian Scott, Ray Fawkes, Anton McKay and Michael Katchan.
Comic Book Heroes airs in two parts. The first aired on August 13 and part two will go to air on ABC 1 on August 20. Check out our review here.
