Milk Shadow Books is known to publish an eclectic mix of titles from independent Aussie, New Zealand and international artists which are often original, humourous, terrifying or downright weird.
Highlights include Tim Molloy’s Mr Unpronouncable Adventures and It Shines and Shakes and Laughs, Dillon Naylor’s A Brush with Darkness, J. Marc Schmidt’s black comedy All You Bastards Can Go Jump Off a Bridge, underground humour comic You Stink and I Don’t plus plenty more.
Established in 2008, Milk Shadow Books are planning heaps more such as Da ‘n’ Dill – The Showbag Years, a collection of all the infamous comics of the same name that have entertained kids and adults alike as they were sneakily placed in Aussie showbags.
“We believe that the breadth, exceptional quality, and dare I say, sheer tenacity of the Milk Shadow Books offering will compliment what we do perfectly,” said Daniel Chlebowczyk, Product Manager of Manga & Graphic Novels at Madman.
Likewise, James Andre of Milk Shadow Books states, “It’s an honour to be working with Madman. With their cutting edge animation and alternative media collection, we see the future of our two companies working perfectly together.”
This is the latest partnership Madman have made with graphic novel publishers, following the deal with Gestalt Publishing. We’ll be seeing the range of Milk Shadow Books released by Madman sometime in August this year.
