Here are Julie’s upcoming graphic novel credits.
Title: The Super Australians
Editor: Christopher Sequeira
Chapter Story and Script: Julie Ditrich
Art: Marcelo Baez
Synopsis: A graphic chapter-novel in the grand tradition of superhero team sagas, created by 12 combos of writer and artist, totalling 24 main creators (and a couple of able, supporting guest-talents); an assemblage of 26 of some of Australia’s most loved and accomplished comics writers and artists!
Twelve Australian superheroes stand against 12 menaces in every State, Territory, and geographical clime of Australia from parched deserts to the ice-covered Australian Antarctic Territory. These heroes—six males and six females–represent diverse ages, ethnicities and walks of life and an impressive array of super powers or special abilities possessed in this strange, wide, brown land of ours.
And these warriors will need every bit of inspiration and energy they have to deal with sinister villains that have been deployed to serve a dark mastermind who wants to strike malevolently at the very existence of their home nation: The Land Beneath the Southern Cross. Can a dozen very different champions resist the darkness? For, if even one fails, the future may be written in the stars, and that future may be disastrous.
