about this item

A brilliantly conceived graphic novel that tells the history of Singapore through the lens of its greatest—though not entirely successful—comic book artist.Meet Charlie Chan Hock Chye, the greatest comic book artist you've probably never heard of. When he started making comics in Singapore as a boy of 16 in 1954, Chan expected fame and fortune to quickly follow. But just as Singapore's road to independence would be full of twists and turns, so too would Chan's own journey as an artist. Splicing together a dizzying array of art styles, genres and forms, Sonny Liew's multilayered graphic novel is a celebration of life, comics and storytelling. The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is a witty and innovative work that challenges the possibilities of the comics medium, creating a double-edged history, pulsing with the tensions and wonders of lived experience, its friendships, first loves and heartaches.
