Crime Scene Australia – Terror Nullius is a black and white graphic novel that tells the story of an Australian TV crew shooting an investigative cold case TV series. The series investigates historical sites where Aboriginal people were massacred during the colonialist war, then descends into a murderous and terrifying ghost story. It is a mixed-genre graphic novel combining real Australian history, forensic science, and contemporary social critique – with black comedy wrapped in a pop-culture narrative of supernatural horror.
