Established in 1993 in Hamilton City of Dreams during the last days of high school and the first days of the dole, Oats initial incarnation as an actual gang proved half-arsed and scary. They realised making comics was not as sore and if you can throw a punch or pick a lock you can just as easily draw a comic.

Over the years titles such as choice guy, darkanus, dad and tracy, nice gravy, city of tales and scorch have appeared under the Oats banner. Oats comics embrace true horror, everyday awe, derelict hilarity, the piss and shit mundane, drunken scribble and the most beautifulist and stupidist.

A Fist or a Club or Something exhibits new works in pen,ink pencil and twink, cellotape, computers, scissors, old dollys, sequins, cardboard, and photocopier.
