The Art of Charlie Chan Hocky Chye was one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2016 in the Comics category 🙂

“The history of Singapore and the history of comics are blended in this tour de force that follows the career of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, an imaginary Singaporean cartoonist. Liew mimics styles from manga to comics strips, as Chye tries to find his own voice while adapting to the shifting social and political climate. ”

Loti Gone Case in Wonderland

Featuring: Sonny Liew, Koh Hong Teng, Dave Chua, Troy Chin
Venue: Transaction Pavilion, Campus Green, Singapore Management University (Capacity: 80)
Moderator: Terence Chua

“Whether set in 18th-century England and modern-day void decks in Singapore, Troy Chin, Sonny Liew and Dave Chua have no doubt created riveting narratives for their readers. These writers and illustrators, among Singapore’s best known, engage in a heart-to-heart chat about the ideas behind their works, and how words and illustrations complement each other.”
