WOW! We’re pretty excited to report that Sonny Liew’s THE ART OF CHARLIE CHAN HOCK CHYE came out today (March 1, 2016 Pantheon) and it has already hit Amazon’s #1 spot in the “New Release” section of the “Art of Comics & Manga” category!

This book is the much awaited graphic novel about the life and times of the pioneering, but almost forgotten, comics artist named Charlie Chan Hock Chye.

His art career spanned six decades, from Singapore’s struggle for independence and all the way through to its modern incarnation as a cosmopolitan city-state. This book celebrates both the artwork, and there’s a ton of it, and the Artist as well.

Here’s a quick post to share this fun photo taken by Chip at the recent 2015 New York Comic Con event. It appears that someone is a HUGE fan of Chip Kidd’s bestselling book, Bat-Manga: The Secret History of Batman in Japan (Pantheon). That book covered the stories and artwork of Jiro Kuwata’s version of the Dynamic Duo and this tattoo recreates the famous Japanese Comic Book logo art… AWESOME!


 

BAT-MANGA! Custom Japanese #BATMAN “Lord Death Man” Statue

An extremely talented Artist & Friend sent us this wonderful photo recently showing a custom statue he created. His name is Deane Aikins and his work is AWESOME! Check out this “Lord Death Man” Statue he made from scratch! He writes a blog about his love of Batman, Collecting Comic Books and His Obsessions with Vintage Toys. It’s titled, WHEN BATMOBILES FLY. There, he did a write-up about making this statue so please be sure to check that out, LINK.

Now, for those of you unfamiliar with this character he is a long lost Batman Villain that was brought back to life (excuse the pun) by Chip Kidd’s book, “BAT-MANGA! The Secret History of Batman in Japan”. This book celebrated the 1960’s artwork of the Japanese Manga Artist, Jiro Kuwata.  Here is an example of his work and then below is the book cover for Chip’s book (Pantheon, Paperback version).

Oh yeah, we also gotta mention that Lord Death Man appeared in “animation form” in an episode of Cartoon Network’s BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. Check it out!
