Twelve Panels Press was founded in April 2015 by Bernard Caleo, Erica Wagner, and Elizabeth MacFarlane.

We want to contribute to Australian and New Zealand book culture by publishing graphic novels that we love.

The Salty River by Jan Bauer (published September 2015) is our first book. We believe comics build bridges. We want to connect authors with the people who read their books, to make international graphic novels available in Australia and New Zealand, and to encourage more people to encounter the beautiful storytelling medium of comics.

Regarding submissions: We are not able to respond to or consider unsolicited manuscripts or pitches.
