The Ollie Comics:
Diary of a first-time dad

As a first-time dad, I journalled about my first two and a half years of parenting. Being a comic artist, I told my stories in the form of comics. Follow me and my wife and I experience the trials and joys of being new parents, from the day of the birth, nursing, dealing with the baby’s poo-poo, waking up at nights, and navigating a toddler’s growing independence. Rather than a how-to book, this comic book journal will give parents-to-be a peek into the future, lets experienced parents relive those familair moments, and helps those without kids understand their exhausted friends a little better.


This book started out as a regular update on social media where relatives and friends were updated on what raising a baby was like, from a dad's point of view. Every story really happened and nothing was exagerated or made-up. When there was enough material, it made sense to collect it all into one book. Readers would often say "that happened to us too!" And that would be among one the best compliments received. 


Although it was intended parents, kids have been known to read this book from cover-to-cover in one sitting. Even getting their parents to read it to them!  


Paperback, 183mm x 257mm, 120pages, Full colour, Premium woodfree paper.
