May Missives: Book Launch and Doctor Fate


The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye Book Launch

For those in Singapore, do drop by Books Kinokuniya (Main Store) on May 30, from 2-3pm for the launch of The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye.

The international edition of the book will be released by Pantheon Books in 2016,  but readers in Singapore and Malaysia can get a copy now at all good bookstores, as well as online from Epigram Books.

Unique and unprecedented… a masterpiece.
Mike Carey, Lucifer, The Unwritten, The Girl with All the Gifts

A joy to read. Sonny Liew masterfully weaves the history of Singapore with the history of comics into something you’ve never experienced before.”
Gene Luen YangAmerican Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints


This week also saw the release of the 8-page Dr. Fate teaser story from DC Comics, which you can read online or at the end of Aquaman #2.

Written by Paul Levitz and drawn by myself and lettered by Nick Napolitano (with Lee Louridge on colours in the series proper), issue #1 is out on June 17 🙂

“If this series treats Khalid’s journey into becoming Doctor Fate with the same care and thoughtful consideration that Levitz and Liew are implying in this short chapter, then we will have a very meaningful and important book on our hands.” –



  1. Hello Sonny. Is there an e-book version of this?

    I am interested in this so very much but would like to get the e-version if possible.

    Thank you!


    1. Hiya C, the current edition is only available in Singapore and Malaysia, and there isn’t an e-book version yet. The international edition will be out next year from Pantheon books, and I’m not sure if they’re planning an e-version either… are you based in singapore/malaysia…? 🙂

      1. I am in Singapore. In the case, I will get the non e-book. Its just that I’ve stopped buying non e-books for many years. It’s especially hard to move when moving between countries and I tend to lose non electronic things. I will definitely support you. Where else can I get it besides Kino (Popular, MPH?) and is it back in stock? Thank you. 🙂
