Silent Army is an imprint that began as a name for publishing small press experimental and underground comic artist anthologies.
The imprint continues to work on publishing anthologies as well as a diversity of other small press publishing editions. These editions often present work from artists and non-artists alike, aiming to engage the reader in the possibilities of an artistic practice.
Silent Army Storeroom was a project name for purpose built spaces built within shared studio warehouses in Naarm/Melbourne that began in 2011. Designed for small events, book display, discussion and the purpose of bringing people together, it closed in early 2020 to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
This archive and the ongoing research under the name Silent Army has been an imprint co ordinated by MP Fikaris since 2007.
