Something I forgot to mention here, which I think quite important; well, to me at least.

12 June, The Star Papers. Quickly browsing thru the papers and lo! Stumbled into an article with fimiliar art. It's Milx! (Note: A neato artist from Urban Comics, local comic.)


***************



By KALEON RAHAN
With a career that reads like a comic book script, it’s clear why upcoming Kuching-born comics artist Milx has got the hype-o-meter needle on the rise and his profile will receive a supercool boost next month as he pencils Silver Surfer’s return for Marvel Comics. KALEON RAHAN goes in search of the mysterious Milx.

THE name Silver Surfer is synonymous with names such as Jack “King” Kirby, Stan “The Man” Lee, Galactus, John Buscema, Mephisto and Shalla Bal. Next month, be prepared to add another name to the list and it goes by Milx – Malaysia’s first full-fledged addition to the “House of Ideas”.

(Note: Do not give me some ass comment that working Marvel/American comics is evil.. I got alot of that already from my friends and by the nine hells, let the guy be happy with his achievements!)

On the contrary, working for them seems pretty freaking classy to me, and a great way to build up recognition and trust in the industry. Get famous then go weird, you'll have a wider reader base :)

Indeed, what Ross said.
He has my respect.

Singapore is the suckiest place to be an artist, since the country pretty much tells you to go fuck off and die. If you're not a Doctor, Lawyer or an entrepreneur, you're useless to the country.

...

Our local comics are total shit. Its all education stuff aimed for little kids. And those that are not totally suck, like the Virusart fuckers.. good god....

FSC rocks, yes, but its sad that very few people actually even know she's Singaporean. I had a chat with a comic store guy once, he seemed surprised I know that she's local.

getting paid to draw ANYTHING is good, and working for a comic book company is probably the greatest thing to hit his career
