UPDATE: Newton Comics - The Amazing Rise & Spectacular Fall Book

Here's the first in a weekly series of updates relating to the Newton Comics book.  I'm almost one fifth of the way towards achiving full funding via Pozible, but there's still a long way to go yet. If you can't donate then that's fine, just spread the word as far and as wide as possible.   The URL for the book funding is here: http://www.pozible.com/project/23150/120085

Melbourne and Australian based folk might want to see if you can get your PR people interested - this was a Melbourne based company after all and has all the right ingredients for a juicy story - sex, drugs, rock and roll, comic books, crime, brothels, politics - you name, Newton did more than dabble in it. Americans with an interest in comic book history? Well this is the FIRST full length book about an Australian publisher and, don't forget, they managed to take Marvel Comics for over $30,000 in 1975. That wasn't chump change.   Comic books were never like this before, or since.

Get in there and share the love.

In the meantime, here's a look at the revised cover...feel free to share your thoughts.
