When cartoonists collide.


Part 1: 26 November 2017 to 18 January 2018
A strange thing has begun on the Australian Cartoonists' Association's public Facebook page. A series of strips and panels have started to surface, written and drawn by various cartoonists and all intertwined with each other.

In an attempt to try and keep some sort of record I'll be updating this blog page as new entries appear. They may or may not be shown in chronological order of when they were originally posted on Facebook though. The reason for this is to try and get them all to blend in seamlessly with a running dialogue.

So grab yourself something comfortable to drink, you may need it, as we present the Australian Cartoonists' Association's (and other possibly rogue cartoonists') saga of....

And thus begins our journey. I shall now attempt to spread these worms about in a vague attempt to keep the story line from straying too far away from itself. Continuity is not a guaranteed constant in all strips and panels though. You have been warned.

And thus, everything came to a flying stop as everyone got on with themselves and Vince got on with growing a couple of good sized cataracts to pass the boredom.

All will be revealed soon, (about 10 months later).
