Iron Outlaw comic strip 1970


Iron outlaw was created by myself and illustrated by Greg Mc Alpine. We had both just finished at Swinburne and were looking for things to do. The year was 1970. Australia was going to Vietnam and China had emerging as a world power. The Australian identity was under threat from American TV and Japanese products. This resulted in a sudden surge in Australian Nationalism.
Iron Outlaw set out to lampoon all that was going on.

It appeared in the Sunday Observer and Nation Review. It lasted for a single year. Political correctness was not the force that it is today so some of these images may offend. Please take it all in with the sense of humour it was created with in 1970. Enjoy!
