Back for the third year running, Comicker’s Union is organising KL Comic Week this weekend at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, in collaboration with TAGCC 2018! With the aim of bridging the gaps between the international and local comic scene, this exhibition will be the first comic exhibition of its scale in Malaysia, featuring the support of comickers from Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan!
Compared to previous years, this year’s showcase will be much larger and robust. Expect to see the work of international masters such as Kurata Yoshimi, Ho Chi Men, Suet Ching, James Teo, Max Lai, D2 and Black Jellyfish. It is also fully supported by the Taiwan Ministry of Culture and Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Malaysia, who will be sending 4 of their veteran artists to promo their comics and strengthen the relations between the Taiwan and Malaysian comic scene. Those artists are Max Lai, Chiu Peng Chin, Chen Guo, and D2.
