CAPTAIN KITTY HAWK is a sci-fi parody, a romp in the hilarious recesses of a deranged mind.
A legendary girl scientist leads a band of disgruntled mailroom workers through strange lands on a journey to help a band of peace loving alien rock musicians return to their home planet.
Will it all go postal!

ABOUT THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL
This Graphic Novel a work in progress, (WIP). I started it way back in the distant past when I did eight years in a maximum security prison – as a teacher.
It’s a intertextual anomaly whose inspiration comes from a variety of sources including the guys I taught in prison, all NSW Aboriginal men; a dream I had about a girl and a hawk; and other weird experiences with Aboriginal Clever Women I had too crazy to mention.
After a long hiatus from teaching in jails to work in post production houses such as Ambience, Animal Logic, Cutting Edge, Digifilm and Photon I am back teaching and writing.
While working at Animal Logic some bright producer suggested I turn ‘That Hawk’ into a cult comic.
Right shall I just advertise for cult followers then?

The WIP Files also stand as a metaphor for the growth of Kitty and her companions. Life is a journey not a destination.
