Mike Barry is a writer and illustrator from Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Supported by a career in advertising, he created, crowd-funded and self-published his first middle-grade graphic novel Action Tank – Book 1 in 2017, which quickly gained popularity with readers and recognition with critics.
Action Tank – Book 1 was shortlisted for an Aurealis Award (Best Graphic Novel 2017), was included in the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge, and earned him a mentorship in the CBCA Maurice Saxby Creative Development Program.
The success of Book 1 laid the foundation for the much anticipated second chapter in the series, the 2020 released Action Tank – Book 2, which was created thanks to another successful crowd-funding campaign, and with support the Creative Partnerships Australia MATCHLab program.
Action Tank – Book 2 has now been shortlisted for multiple literary awards, including the 2021 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, The 2021 Russell Prize for Humour Writing, The 2020 Comics Arts Awards of Australia and the 2020 Aurealis Awards.
