Emile Mercier rediscovered

Emile Mercier was possibly Australia’s best-loved cartoon humourist.

He created many satirical characters and parodies of comic heroes of the period, all presented in his unique Australian colloquial style.

His serialised stories ran through such a diversity of comic book titles from wartime through the 1940s that it seems unlikely that many readers could have followed every episode.

The collections in these books are a partial attempt to redress this, and perhaps help to rescue some of Mercier’s work from the unjustified oblivion which ensnares so much of our “popular culture”.
