Newton Comics - The Rise & Fall: eBook Available Now

Finally it's here.  The long awaited full history of Newton Comics, the Australian publisher of the 1970s, complete with scans of every single comic that was issued and a plethora of rarely seen collectibles, most of which have never been seen since they were published, and a host of previously unseen and unearthed documents. Features an introduction by noted Australian comic book historian Kevin Patrick and an afterword by long time Newton Comic collector and author Robert Thomas.

In this book you'll read how a maverick publisher, Maxwell Newton, was able to get the license to publish Marvel Comics by stealth in the 1970s. You'll read how the comic book line started, how successful it was and how it all fell apart with spectacular results.  This is a story that anyone who has an interest in comic books - especially Marvel Comics and publishing needs to read. It's a story that has never been told in it's entirety before, even people who were at Marvel at the time had no clue as to what was happening.

The book is in .pdf format, which can be viewed on your tablets, iPads and computers. It is 228 pages and is lavishly illustrated with over 250 images.  And it'll cost you a mere $5:00.
