The book is due to hit the shelves in Singapore and Malaysia in early April!
There’ll be a 2-page Green Turtle comic by Gene Yang and myself in the upcoming Defend Comics collection for Free Comic Books Day!

Here’s a couple of panels from the comic :)
There’ll be a new story by Gene Yang and myself in the upcoming Vertigo Quarterly!
Do check it out! :)
A couple of sketches done at Atom Comics… It’s Han the Human and Chewie the Dog, plus Ice King Vader and Princess Marceleia, I guess :p
Meanwhile, for an early word on the Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, here’s a podcast from Comics Alternative, at around minute 35 to 39 :)
Been working on The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye for quite a while, past deadlines and cancelled grants, always wondering where the book was headed… so it’s with a sense of relief and a dose of giddiness to be able to say that the book is being picked up in the US and UK by Pantheon Books.
Their back catalog is several kinds of amazing, from Maus to Persepolis, Asterios Polyp to Jimmy Corrigan, Ice Haven, Mr. Wonderful and the Ben Katchors…
I’m hoping Charlie Chan is not some kind of outlier; but even if it was, I’ll just ride the wave for a bit before the wipeout :p
Readers in Singapore and Malaysia will get a first look at the book, with Epigram Books publishing what might be called the Singaporean edition in early 2015.
