Welcome to the placeholder website of Jason Towers, an Australian writer and illustrator. Not the one that sings, or any of those other ones on Facebook.
Thrilled to be involved with HAH?!, a new Australian comedy magazine.
According to this press release it’s “…32 pages of full colour graphical wit from Scarlette Baccini, Samantha Boyd, Greg Gates, Owen Heitmann, Ben Hutchings, Stanton Marriott, Bruce Mutard, Dillon Naylor and Jason Towers.” That last bit is confirmed, I wrote some pages. And I also lettered and coloured some pages, since episode 1 of Preston Peace gets reprinted therein.
It’s made of actual paper and ink, not screen pixels. There’s a Facebook though: facebook.com/HAHcomic
HAH?! issue 1 is available from the (currently) respectable online retailer Ownaindi, ownaindi.com/shop/comics/hah.
Issue 2 is due later in 2019.
The second instalment of Preston Peace is in newsagents now, in the form of issue 8 of the anthology comic Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi. Or you can get it from the publisher’s website www.comicoz.com .
This instalment was written and coloured by me, and drawn by Adelaide comics guy Owen Heitmann. We’re lucky we got Owen on board early, because he recently received a grant from Arts South Australia to produce a full-length graphic novel of his own. (Keep an eye out for it at Owen’s jam-packed website 24 Hour Cynic.)
Preston Peace is a comic strip about a unique schoolboy, created by Jason and Australian comics legend Dillon Naylor. The first 8-page story (written by Jason, illustrated by Dillon) appears in issue 7 of the anthology Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi, available in newsagents now. Yay!
