COMIC RE­LIEF

Southeast Asia Globe - - Incoming / Your Monthly Guide To Culture -

Malaysian comic book artists and their fol­low­ers now have a place to call their own, with the Malaysia Car­toon and Comic House open­ing its doors in Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Gar­dens last month. The cen­tre charts the his­tor­i­cal de­vel­op­ment of the art form in Malaysia and dis­plays more than 500 car­toon and comic book works dat­ing back to the 1930s. “The mis­sion at Malaysia Car­toon and Comic House is also to in­tro­duce and cel­e­brate the en­tire com­mu­nity – the early pioneers, the le­gends, the out­sider artists, right down to the clearly weird mav­er­icks and one-hit won­ders,” said Tazidi Yusof, one of the Comic House’s cu­ra­tors, at the cen­tre’s re­cent launch.
