Ned Kelly

Author(s): Monty Wedd

Australian History

Another book on Ned Kelly? Well yes and no. It is certainly a book on the Australian bushranger...but it is like no other! In the 1970s, Artist and Historian Monty Wedd produced a weekly newspaper adventure strip that fully detailed Kelly's life. This volume collects, for the very first time, each and every eposide of Monty Wedd's monumental three year undertaking. Wedd made Ned Kelly as authentic as possible. He told the story with an even handed approach...and...rendered it in a style that resembles earlier engravings. It was an excellent example of how to use the comic medium to teach history. - John Ryan, Panel by Panel: An Illustrated History of Australian Comics Monty Wedd - Awards and Honours: 1987 and 1989 - Winner Australian Black and White Artist's Club Award: Adventure/Illustrated Strip Artist 1993 - Medal of the Order of Australia OAM for Services to the Community as a Historian, Writer and Illustrator 2004 - Winner of the Jim Russell Award for Significant Contribution to Australian Cartooning
