AUSTRALI #1 Chapter One: Maloo of the Desert

written by Timothy Wood and beautifully illustrated by international comic artist Pius Bak.


We follow the story of Maloo, a young Aboriginal boy searching for his people and a place to call home. 
Set twenty years after the European, Chinese and Middle Eastern empires first set foot on Australi's shores, Maloo must navigate a new world, full of unique and dangerous trials. 

Maloo unwillingly becomes the hope of his people when an old prophecy is handed down. Now with not only the British empire after him, but also pirates, poachers and mercenaries, Maloo must find his inner spirit to fulfil the heavy burden placed upon him. 
As the land becomes scarred by foreign war machines and the great animal spirits are captured as poachers prizes, Australi grows sick and its magical beauty fades. Ancient magic brews on all sides of the battle, with one boy and his odd band of destined heroes all that's left to save it!


This first edition of AUSTRALI includes extended behind the scenes interviews with the creators about the process of creating this amazing comic book.
