Australia Burns is an anthology book of art and stories in tribute to the heroic firefighters and volunteers who have sacrificed everything to protect us from the vicious bushfire crisis, who are STILL fighting fires in many areas of Australia.
The creative team of writers and artists are some of the most talented you will find in this country, and several of the stories are written by real-life firefighters, giving a valuable insight into just what it's like on the frontlines.
The book will be 80-100 pages in size, full colour, and thanks to the generous sponsorship of Jeffries Printing - all proceeds from sales will be donated to the following charities:
- Country Fire Authority (CFA)
- Rural Fire Service (RFS)
- Wild2Free Wildlife Rescue
- Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park
- South Australian Veterinary Emergency Management (SAVEM)

The book goes to press in mid-February and will be officially launched at Supanova Comic-con and Gaming on March 6-8, and various stores across the country in the following weeks.
