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.”

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.” – Comicosity.com
