At Liquid City Launch in Singapore

Michael, Sau Lim, Lefty and Wan Kok (with his wife, 3-D artist Khor) are Malaysian creators who traveled to Singapore for this event.

People already started to gather just a bit before 2 pm. By 4 pm, which the autograph session ended, all the copies of Liquid City anthology (Retailing at about 40+ SGD) are completely sold out. According to Sonny Liew, this means it will remain on Kinokuniya's top sellers chart for another week.

We all did 3 huge pieces of jam art which will be given away to 3 readers who purchase a copy of Liquid City during the launch. Winners will be determined by lucky draw.

Among the creators who took part were:
Sonny Liew (Liquid City anthology's editor, coordinator and organizer of the launches)
Koh Hong Teng
Drew Scape
Otto Fong
Hu Jingxuan
Troy Chin
Ken Foo
Ray Toh
Gary Choo
Leong Wan Kok
Michael Chuah
Chin Sau Lim

Gilamon would like to thank Sonny Liew for making such organizing this wonderful event and tirelessly keeping it afloat during the 2 hour session. Most of us are not good with the mike and he has to do most of the talking. Lefty did a brief intro on Gempak Starz, Popcorn (which is available in Singapore now) and the Malaysian comic book market. Hopefully no one fell asleep during that few minutes.

Gilamon not only managed to attend the launch of Half Flat, we also got to visit Spencer and see his impressive collection of comic book and movie character bust and statue thanks to Bernard Ang of G & B Comics and Winston Goh. More picture on Spencer's collection in our later posting.

Liquid City Malaysia Launch will be at Kinokuniya KLCC on the 14th of December Sunday at 2 pm onwards. So far Sonny and Otto are confirmed coming. We are sure there will be more Singapore based creators will take part in this event in KLCC.
