Neither Here Nor Hair is heartfelt comics anthology by 14 Australian creators about their relationships with hair (of all kinds). From hilarious to gut-punching, exploring our cultural norms and sometimes rejecting them, 14 creators come together for this sincere, insightful collection of comics drawn from the creator's own lives.
Featuring comics from:
- Sarah Catherine Firth
- Ele Jenkins
- Emma Jean
- Leonie Brialey
- Alex E Clark
- Claire Murray
- Michel Gerencir
- Alyce Sarich
- Natalia Zajaz
- Soolagna Majumdar
- Danikah Harrison
- Sarah W Searle
- Alisha Jade
As a concept, Neither Here Nor Hair grew after I made my minicomic Disgusting! (also about hair) and saw how a wide range of people enthusiastically enjoyed it. In our society we are constantly marketed ideas about hair, whether on our heads, face, armpits, legs, and everywhere in between, but we're rarely given the chance to talk about our experiences. There is a hunger for real and relatable perspectives about this sometimes small thing that can be such a big deal in our lives, and I think comics is the perfect medium for it!
There are some stretch goals planned, but the main one is that every dollar contributed over our goal will count towards creator bonuses. While everyone is being paid regardless, it's really important to me that if this does well they take home as much as possible.

Risks and challenges
I've printed a lot before, and run kickstarters before, so there's not a lot that I can't find a solution for one way or the other. All the comics are already complete, it's just off to print and posting it out to everyone!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
