Sonny Liew becomes first Singaporean to win Eisner Award

https://sg.news.yaho...-031844803.html

Comic artist Sonny Liew has become the first Singaporean to win an Eisner Award, the comic industry’s equivalent of the Oscars.

Nominated in six categories for graphic novel “The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye”, Liew triumphed in three. He won in the Best Writer/Artist, Best US Edition of International Material – Asia, Best Publication Design and categories

The award ceremony, which took place at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront on Saturday morning (22 July) Singapore time, is held annually at the San Diego Comic Convention. Awards were give out to comic creators and works in 30 categories, with the winners chosen via online voting by industry professionals.

Liew had the most Eisner nominations of any creator in 2017, also being nominated in the categories of Best Graphic Album – New, Best Colouring and Best Lettering.

The Eisner award caps two years of international accolades and acclaim for Liew, including the 2016 Singapore Literature Prize, ever since “Charlie Chan” was released. It has also garnered glowing reviews in major publications such as The New York Times, The Economist and The Washington Post.

Written and illustrated by Liew, the book is an ambitious meditation on Singapore’s history, socio-political issues, comic art history, censorship and more. It examines key incidents in Singapore’s history such as the Hock Lee Bus riots, and includes the late Lee Kuan Yew and Lim Chin Siong as comic characters.

In 2015, the National Arts Council withdrew an $8,000 publishing grant for “Charlie Chan”, citing its “sensitive content”.

I've got the book, haven't got around to reading it yet. It's definitely not the funny (haha) sort of comic, though. Quite a bit seems to be simple nostalgia, but a lot is definitely very overt political satire.

NAC looking like they got amnesia. Who is the cuckoo in charge now? Really thick skin.

 

To allege that some fellow's comic book "potentially undermines the authority and legitimacy" of government ... that's a serious charge. In fact, it's lucky that the author is now a singaporean, else god knows how he will be "fixed".

 

And now the book wins international recognition - so how? Make it required reading in our schools? Hmmm.... decisions, decisions [laugh] To be fair though, I've seen it at a public library, so it's not as controversial as first thought. I've flipped though it, basically a satirical version of singapore history, with characters that are clearly identifiable ... and how journalists have to toe the line or risk being detained in the "store room" for transgressions [laugh]

Amazon and book depository OOS. Where to buy?

 

I wanna buy to support the author in his goal to "undermine the authority and legitimacy of the government".
