Their Hooks

Their Hooks Find Hold Deep In Our Flesh is a graphic novel about Australia’s colonial history.

Their Hooks was written by Kate Fielding and illustrated by Mandy Ord, Elizabeth McDowell, Clint Cure and Ben Fox. Kate submitted this as her History Honours thesis at the University of Melbourne; this was the first time the university has accepted a full length comic as a thesis text.

The graphic novel was redeveloped with support from the Australia Council for the Arts and published by Meanjin/Melbourne University Press.
