Preston Peace is a comic strip concerning the adventures of an unusual schoolboy, his friends and the staff at his modern school. Look for it quarterly in the anthology Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi, beginning with issue 7 from February 2016. Preston Peace was created by Dillon Naylor and Jason Towers. Owen Heitmann does a ton of the art.
Come to think of it... yes, the anthology is quarterly, but you can look for it as often as you like. So I could have phrased that better.
Preston is on Facebook! Who'd have thought it?
