Jim, along with his dog, appeared in the Melbourne newspaper, City
Extra, during 1984 and 1985. There's a sample page of these strips at the link.
Maelstrom had his own self-titled comic in 1982 - part of an extended tale which I did continue, but most of which didn't see publication (though I did nearly complete it).
The excellent Australian comic, Reverie, picked up Maelstrom's adventures (a self-contained prequel to
the epic) from #4 to #7. It was a substantial Australian anthology comic with newstand distribution and one of the first to appear.
There's also a page on Maelstrom at Tabula Rasa
