Description - The Tango Collection by Bernard Caleo

'Here you'll find some of the most memorable comics by cartoonists from Australia and New Zealand - from the haunting hallucinations of Jo Waite to the methodical precision of Bruce Mutard. There's humour, joy, pain, pleasure and queasy recognition to be found here. Stories of sadness and loss, domestic familiarity, youthful passion, perversity and lust. Because Tango is, after all, a romance comic. Love, like food, can deliver nausea or bliss in equal portions. And isn't that what life is all about?' Dylan Horrocks

The Tango Collection is the perfect introduction for anyone curious about this exciting and versatile storytelling medium.

Author Biography - Bernard Caleo

Bernard's love of comics began with Asterix and Tintin hardcovers borrowed from the Northcote library in the 1970s, continued with superhero comics in the 1980s, and got all grown-up with 'graphic novels' in the 1990s and beyond. In 1991 he began making comic books himself: planning, writing, drawing and publishing them. Frequently these comic book series have been collaborations - Yell Ole! and The False Impressionists with Tolley, Cafe Ghetto with John Murphy - but he also flies solo, as with the stories and mini-comics featuring the character Hermann Flaneur and his ongoing online tragi-comic book I Knew Him. In 1997 Bernard launched the comic book publishing imprint Cardigan Comics, and he has edited and published Tango ever since. Bernard has watched comic books develop as a storytelling art, and is very excited about the directions for comic books as part of book culture and visual art culture in Australia.
