Sydney, Australia: The creative team behind one of Australia's most critically and commercially successful comic book series, Winter City, is moving towards an ambitious “Creator Owned” publishing model.

With the outstanding success of the Winter City series (, and the anticipation building for the upcoming all-age series, Mechanical Knight (, the Winter City Productions team feel that their high quality output, experience and media reach will prove to be an invaluable opportunity for Australian independent creators. Their ultimate goal is to help elevate the international reputation of the Australian comic book scene.

In relation to the company's new publishing direction, Winter City Productions founder and MD Patrick Purcell said, “There is an incredible amount of artistic and literary talent in Australia but all the talent is failing to achieve the success it deserves due, in part, to a lack of direction. By sharing our marketing, production and editing experience, we hope to change the face of Australian comic books. We aspire to convert a niche scene into a thriving and viable industry. We want to show Australian comic book readers that Australian books can be just as exciting and entertaining as any international production”.

Winter City Productions will announce their first “Creator Owned” title in the lead up to Sydney Supanova and the first issue will be available in print at the event. Also available at Supanova will be the next instalment of the Winter City series and the debut issue of Mechanical Knight.
