Not many publishers? It feels more like the ones that do make comics (or attempt to) have no idea how to actually compete with imports. All of which kick our local industry in the ass with sheer volume. We have a HUGE talent pool with lots of money-making potential and no strong direction. Sad indeed.

correct indeeedddddd

sad thing is most of the investors are afraid to venture into Comic publishng business..coz its a big risk..pain stackng & it take 2 years to see your revenue..

As'kum Azhar...
pa kabar?
i just found out that, our generation of comics artist (or cartoonist)- i'm talking specifically to malaysian artist, is almost invisible from the international recognition. I mean they (the comics scholars) know only Lat and Gila-gila (and anything fall into their generation) as malaysian comcis.
So, when i said i would like to study about the cultural expression of this type of young generation of comics artist, the scholars have no idea about what is malaysian comcis.
I assume that malaysican next generation comics characters are a local appropriation of global form of comics. Which i planned to do the research from 8 local comics magazines. Researcg into their content, context, and the indenity issues.
so, i think it is important to rise the issue about what is the objective of this new generations of malaysian comics artists? does it included in pekomik mission and vision?
i'll be back in july. and please give me some time to discuss. i need to take u as one of my respondent. hehehe...
