Story: Comics and graphic novels



Burton Silver's Bogor first appeared in the New Zealand Listener in 1973 and became one of the country's longest-running comic strips. Collections were also published in book form between 1975 and 1994. In this strip, woodsman Bogor has modified the classic black New Zealand singlet into an executioner's mask. His cheery 'Good morning trees' is at odds with his outfit and intentions.
