Award-winning graphic novelist Sonny Liew blurs the lines between reality and fiction with this three time Eisner Award winning graphic novel that traces the parallel lives of the titular Charlie Chan and modern Singapore.
In 1954, a young Charlie Chan witnesses a police attack on a peaceful student demonstration, an encounter that eventually leads him on a quest to become Singapore s Greatest Comic Artist.
The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye traces Chan’s journey amidst the tumultuous times of pre-independent Singapore through to the hyper-modern metropolis the island city-state is today.
Bringing together a dazzling array of genres, styles and forms, the multi-award-winning graphic novel is by turns exhilarating, funny and moving, reclaiming and reinventing a lost past and pushing the boundaries of the comic book medium in a brilliant retelling of the Singapore Story.
