Fist Full Of Comics (volume two): A six-issue comics anthology zine edited by Owen Heitmann. Altogether, the six issues contain 77 comics by a total of 47 Australian and international creators. Suitable for maturer readers.

How To Save The World: A Beginner's Guide: In the tradition of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, this 48-page comedy-adventure comic book pits Chester Kennedy and his high school friends against an unexpected zombie threat — and proves that fighting occult evil doesn't need to get in the way of battling more universal teenage problems. With top production values thanks to a grant from the South Australian Youth Arts Board, How To Save The World is equal parts homage to and parody of B-grade supernatural horror movies. Suitable for teen and up audiences.
