• Image of Funtime Comics & Art Zine : Issue 28

Funtime showcases the talents of New Zealand and International artists and writers with a range of short story comics, graphic art and articles.

Comics shouldn’t be restricted to black outlines with colour fills. Alex McCrone, artist behind Nothing Fits, provides a rich illustrative cover that bridges the gap between illustration and comic art to present a fresh and organic style.

We love Armageddon for the aspiring artists and writers we meet there. Ryan Green and Sean Lewis stumbled upon us at the Auckland and Christchurch Armageddon expos, and now grace our pages with Sophie & Gil and Solheim's Curse respectively.

Isaac Freeman's Glop, and Bob Gibbon's Mr. Blurt have been fixtures of Funtime for over 20 years. We've missed having them in recent issues, but now they return with their penultimate episodes.

Rae Joyce shares her opinions on New Zealand comics with her thought provoking article, “Comics, Colonialism and Competent Boys in Aotearoa.” It’s a taster of her full essay in Three Words: An anthology of women's comics and cartoons, forthcoming from Beatnik
