Comics Are Cool! (Like we still need convincing?!)

10 Oct

If you’re already following me on Twitter, then you’d have noticed that I retweeted Zid’s tweet about Earthy 638’s upcoming event called ‘Comics Are Cool! @ Earth 638’.


The Comics Are Cool! Event Poster (So Cool! Haha!)

I remember that Earth 638’s shop used to be located in Damansara Jaya’s Atria Shopping Complex, but I guess they must’ve moved since demolition/reconstruction work on the complex began a few months ago. They’re now located at Lot No.31J-2 on the 2nd Floor of Kelana Mall and this event could be an ingenious way for them to draw supporters of the local comic scene to their humble shop once again.

They have a strong lineup of Malaysian artists gracing the event; Gilamon Studios (which comprises of Tan Eng Huat (who is slowly becoming a familiar face at comic events around Southeast Asia), Slaium, Lefty, and Michael Chuah), Alan Quah, Faezal Tan, and the list goes on. It’s going to be a great opportunity to rub shoulders with the who’s who in the Malaysian comics scene!

‘Traditional’ comic shops like Earth 638 are few and far in between in Malaysia nowadays (with the exception of The Mind Shop), so show your support by attending whether you’re a comic aficionado or creator. You probably won’t regret it.

As usual, all the cool things happen when I’m not back in Malaysia, but it’s cool (pun unintended). You can find more information on how to get there and such (like the launch of Malaysia’s 1st Indie Comic Wall) on the Official Comics Are Cool! Facebook Event Page. Viva Comics!

Minor Edit: Changed the Poster image to the latest one to display more information.
