Southern Cross

This a webcomic about a bunch of hopefully amusing people known as the eight state capital cities of Australia. Southern Cross is a moe anthropomorphization comic - in the vein of Hetalia, Afganisu-tan and the OS-tans to name a few - featuring Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin, Adelaide and Perth. It's about their relationships, their rivalries, their teamwork, their personal tragedies, and the fact that they're all, at heart...a little dysfunctional. Primarily a comedy (or at least trying to be), you don't have to know anything about Australia for this. Hell, you don't even have to care about Australia either. And maybe you'll learn a thing or two...but don't worry. It's not that kind of educational.
Updates when I can!


SMASH! and badges!

SMASH! 2014 went very well, so thank you to everyone who visited my stall. If you're one of the new readers who found the comic by following the link on my business card or the Southern Cross sample comics, then I hope you've liked it enough to stay a reader and that the awful art in the character introductions hasnt scared you off.
All leftover stock, including the new Southern Cross badges, are now at Torino-Mart.

The store is now up!

Thank you to those who bought a Southern Cross postcard from my sister at Supanova last week! As promised, the postcards are also now available at the new etsy store Torino-Mart.
A link to the store has also been added on the comic navigation itself. Thank you for supporting Southern Cross! More things will be added to the store after SMASH in August.

Supanova, SMASH and an online store!

If you haven't been following AskMelbourne, check the announcement here about more ways you can support Southern Cross.
Keep an eye on the News for the online store! It will get a link under the comic's banner, next to Ask Melbourne.

3 years online, AskSydney

In just 22 more days I can say Southern Cross has been online for three whole years now. Thank you to everyone who continues to read it.
The planning for the next story arc is still underway and although the updates on the comic itself may be sparse until then, don't forget there's also content going on at AskMelbourne, which is temporarily AskSydney for this month.

Thank you very much, and Happy Birthday Canberra

I've reached 100 fans, which is quite a milestone for me. To everyone who has taken the time to read and favourite this comic, thank you very much.

Also reaching 100 recently is Canberra, who turned a whole century old on the 11th. You can celebrate her birthday on!

Character Poll 2012

Every now and then I remember that there is a news post function.
I dont know how many people actually look at the 'News' part, and I'm sure most readers already know but the 2nd Character Popularity Poll has begun!
Vote for your favourite character at the link below, but make sure to do it before January 19th.
After the in-progress Christmas special, there will be no more updates until Australia Day (Jan.26th), although there will be guest art.

SC is back, again

That hiatus went longer than I expected.
I've made a few layout changes here, and I think the site looks better and less amateurish than it did before.

Thank you for your continued support of this comic. It's difficult managing a webcomic with a full-time job whilst being a champion procrastinator, but I'll do my best!

Some general news: AskMelbourne, etc

*Right now, it seems like 'every 10 days' is the best update schedule to use, although it'd be nice if I could go back to being weekly.

*In the next few weeks if possible I'd really like to change the banner and my avatar if time permits.

*A while ago I made which people seem to be having a lot of fun with. I don't get to update it as often as I'd like, but this will be taking the place of the general FAQ I had before. It's more fun this way anyway.
