As featured by Toni Whitmont in the December Booktopia Buzz.
A vibrant showcase of the most creative comic book talent in Australia and New Zealand - a feast for the senses and a celebration of love in all its guises, edited by the creator of Tango.
Here you'll find some of the most memorable comics by cartoonists from Australia and New Zealand - from the haunting hallucinations of Jo Waite to the methodical precision of Bruce Mutard. There's humour, joy, pain, pleasure and queasy recognition to be found here.
Stories of sadness and loss, domestic familiarity, youthful passion, perversity and lust. Because Tango is, after all, a romance comic. Love, like food, can deliver nausea or bliss in equal portions. And isn't that what life is all about?' Dylan Horrocks.
The Tango Collection is the perfect introduction for anyone curious about this exciting and versatile storytelling medium.
Bernard Caleo launched the comic book publishing imprint Cardigan Comics in 1997 and he has edited and published Tango ever since. He lives in Melbourne.
