Award winning comic creator LOUIE JOYCE joins us from 4pm on Sunday 31st of March for an evening of talking comics and superstition to celebrate the launch of the new graphic novel HAPHAVEN!
Get an extra insight into creating comics as award winning comics writer RYAN K LINDSAY comes along to ask Louie all of the hard hitting questions you are too afraid to ask!
After stepping on a crack and breaking her mother’s back, ever superstitious Alex Mills must journey to Haphaven, the world where all of Earth’s superstitions draw their power. On the search for the lucky rabbit’s foot to save her mom, Alex learns that breaking with superstition might be the key to saving her mom, even if it means she could get jinxed along the way.
Louie Joyce has teamed with Eisner Award nominated writer Norm Harper to create an adventure into the realm of superstition.
About Louie Joyce
Louie Joyce is an award-winning Australian comics creator and illustrator.
After spending his childhood dreaming of becoming an astronaut, superhero, futuristic bikie punk, enchanted mermaid or something cool like that, Louie realised he’d been dreaming a little too long and most that stuff was impossible anyway. Luckily he can draw pretty well so he’s able to experience all those things and more by putting pencil to paper. He CAN be an enchanted mermaid, y’know, if he wants to.
His comics include Past the Last Mountain (Winner of a 2017 Silver Ledger Award), The Many Harold Holts of Space & Time, Astral and self published books MISHMASH& HODGEPODGE.
Louie’s illustration work has been exhibited internationally and he’s worked for a wide range of clients creating illustrations for storyboards, animation, publishing and concept development.
