From graphic artist Matt Huynh comes an Australian Gothic haunted house story of abandoned lovers in a deserted land. Morgan, with little left to lose, kidnaps his own daughter and flees town with his mistress. When they are separated in a storm, he's forced to take shelter in an abandoned hotel where he is greeted by the suspicious generosity of a lovelorn stranger trapped in a purgatory of re-lived gestures and memories of a long departed lover.

PRAISE FOR MAGPIE, MAGPIE -

Matt's latest work is an interesting, soulful exploration of expressive mark-making using bamboo and sumi. His comics are intimate and quiet, marked with moments of explosion. The last half of the book--a wild series of Muybridge-style gestures of magpies in flight-- is worth admission alone.
- Paul Pope, Battling Boy, Batman Year 100

"Moody, evocative and powerfully drawn  - another universe of ink"
- Molly Crabapple, VICE, Week in Hell, Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School

This eerie and desperate ghost story drips, spurts and dances from Matt Huynh’s brush. Powerful storytelling in brilliant black and white.
- James Victore , Victore, or Who Died and Made You Boss?

I am typically more of a fan of print than webcomics but I have never seen anything in this format before and was captivated through the entire reading experience. The expressive and haunting illustrations reminded me in the best way of Emily Carroll's work. Magpie, Magpie is such a disturbingly beautiful piece of work. I loved it. I am gonna read it again right now.
- Farel Dalrymple, The Wrenchies, Pop Gun War

Graphic novel collection of short autobiographical comics drawn from the experiences of a dozen ordinary residents and visitors to the suburban South-Western Sydney migrant community, Cabramatta.

CAB was launched with a solo exhibition showcasing the graphic novel’s entire body of original artwork. The project was supported by the Foundation for Young Australians and select excerpts were included in the Growing Up Asian in Australia anthology from Black Inc Books. 

“As always, Matt Huynh continues to surprise and impress with his exploration of new graphic novel material in the Australian context…there’s never been one like this before – one that redefines what’s possible in this form of media”
- Inkspot, Australian Cartoonists Association Official Journal

4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art commissioned me to create a series of short comics from stories from Chinatown regulars, locals and visitors. The result was a combination of stories of childhood, business, local clubs, students and residents. These shorts were collected in a graphic novel, ‘Chinatown’, and launched at the Sydney Opera House’s Graphic Festival 2011 with a lion dancing troupe performing in front of a projection of their comic strip.
