Beardy And The Geek: Darren Close, Killeroo and OzComics

This week Emmet and Ryan from Geek of Oz interview Darren Close, creator of Killeroo and founder of the wonderful OzComics Facebook community page for aspiring comic artists.

In this week's podcast Darren talks about entering the industry, the origins of Killeroo and a very special opportunity for anyone wanting to be a part of a project involving the famous cranky marsupial. Pay close attention to and for more details over the next 24 hours.

UPDATE: Details of the Gangwars Anthology and how to submit are now up!

Then Emmet gets all embarrassed about his contribution to OzComics - a script challenge featuring The Incredible Hulk. His entry can be seen here and the fifteen illustrations from members of the community here.

As always you can follow Emmet and Ryan on Twitter - @emmetoc_ and @GeekOfOz, and listen to the podcast on iTunes. We'd love to hear from you.


  1. Great chat with Darren, guys. He's on a real winner there with Rufus. The ideal Aussie character to make it big around the world.

  2. Cheers Gary. Ryan has been singing the title's praises to me for some time now, so I was eager to check it out.

    And yes I would be interested to see how readers in other countries would gravitate to Killeroo. I may smuggle some back to Ireland on my next trip back.
