The latest news from the world of Rose
Hello! I am super, SUPER excited about this news! I’m doing my first interstate comic convention! I’ll be at Oz Comic-Con in lovely Melbourne on June 9-10 in Artist’s Alley and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it!
Melbourne has always been awesome to Rose, being on the shelves of many awesome Melbourne comic shops from the early days so it’s about time I stopped by and said hi! Oz Comic-Con was a fantastic show the last time I did it in Brisbane, so this just works out splendidly.
Plus, seriously, Melbourne has literally the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted, so how I resist? 🙂
SO! Come to Oz Comic-Con in June 9-10 at the Melbourne Convention Centre, and stop by the Rose booth in Artist’s Alley! I will have a ton of Rose comics for sale – primarily Rose #8 which will be DEBUTING EXCLUSIVELY AT THE SHOW! OMG. I can’t wait to show this one to you all, it really is something special. I can’t believe we’re up to issue #8 already. Crazy. I will also have some Rose merch AND be doing sketches of any character you want (as long as they’re eating breakfast!)
Can’t wait to see you there!!
PS: Seriously, where’s good in Melbourne to get some Japanese Curry? LET ME KNOW PLZ I WILL DIE WITHOUT IT
PPS: Want to WIN some tickets to the show? My friends at Ausretrogamer are giving away TWO OZ COMIC-CON TICKETS, head on over and enter!
Hello! I am very very excited right now because I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the next Rose book collection printed!
It’s called Rose: Second Helpings and it’s 100+ pages of fun Rose comics, with remastered art and brand new stories that YOU can guest star in! OMG FRIENDS IT’S GONNA BE SO GREAT!
We have digital copies, print copies, signed and sketched copies, guest star appearances and even super-super limited hand-drawn cover versions on offer! This is the ultimate book for yourself or anyone you know who will enjoy comics about food and the power of friendship.

Hello! Did you know that Rose is also on Comixology, the world’s #1 digital comic book shop? It’s true! And what’s more, the very latest issue is now available on that awesome service!
And since Comixology is owned by Amazon, chances are you already have an account there, and are just a few quick clicks away from reading Rose’s latest adventures on your favourite digital devices! Comixology has an awesome feature where it guides you through each comic panel by panel, making it a great comic reading experience even on mobile phones!
Rose #7 is now on Comixology for only 99 cents! You can’t even get a box of McDonald’s Cookies for 99 cents any more. I loved those things. Oh man that reminds me, you know how on McDonald’s Cookies they had a little maze on the back of the box? WELL THEY DON’T EVEN COME IN BOXES ANY MORE! I know right, what a disgrace the modern world is!
Hello! I’m very happy to say that there are some new comic shops added to the list of very fine establishments you can get Rose comics from!
Quimby’s Bookstore in Chicago is getting Rose #7 any day now, and they have tons of great indie comics and other cool shenanigans available!
Studio Comix Press are a new venture in Ontario designed to showcase the latest in independently-made comic books, and we’re proud to have Rose #7 available there! This is the first place in Canada to sell Rose comics, and we’re thrilled to be in a country that celebrates chips so much!
You can see every store that carries Rose on our Comic Shops page – and we can’t wait to add more to the list! If you know of a store that you think would like the world’s hungriest redhead and her silly adventures, please let us know!
ALSO! If you’re a member of a school or public library in Australia or New Zealand, you can ask them to carry Rose Collection! They are distributed through our friends at Peter Pal Library Supplier and ALS Library Services. Copies are already out there in libraries across the countries, so if you see one, I’d love to see a photo!
Who knows where Rose will end up next? MAYBE THE MOON?
HELLO! I am super proud to show off the latest issue of Rose to you!
Rose #7 is jam-packed full of fun, tasty comic goodness. 24 pages of the world’s hungriest redhead and her continuing quest for the perfect lunch.
In this delicious issue, Rose hosts a cooking show, reveals some real truth about cheese, discovers a new best friend and even gets married! (WHAT)
The books just arrived from the printers and they look incredible! (And yes I smelled my copy. Nothing like the smell of a fresh comic book, almost as good as the smell of a fresh croissant you know!)
Rose #7 is also available as a digital download if you absolutely must have your copy right away or just like reading things on screens, which is a pretty good thing to do when pictures of dogs wearing berets just won’t cut it any more.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
