Saga Exclusive Preview Comic (Limited Edition, not for sale punya!)

July 23rd, 2008 by tarakucha

Alhamdulillah, last Sunday also saw the birth of 50 printed (promotional) copies of Saga: The Exclusive Comic Preview. Previously only in digital format, this is our next step towards publishing the full volume.. Thanks to Azihan, the book looks great. Some minor printing and editing errors aside, i’m pretty satisfied with the way it turned out.

The preview book has 9 pages of each chapter. And the whole is 44 pages of full-coloured fun! As of this moment, 5 copies of the preview is on the way to San Diego Comic Con, thanks to Aik Wee. More copies will be circulated to potential sponsors, distributors, publishers and otai-otai komik..

The preview book right now really kicks back some semangat into the team to push towards finishing the whole thing up. I’m really excited over the new prologue and epilogue chapters that Prem and Gecko are working on, and hopefully everything will turn out according to plan. InsyaAllah, I’ll keep all you interested people posted.

Kami..Remaja?

July 23rd, 2008 by tarakucha

Long story short, late last week, Gecko (Ammar) invited me and Adijin to be panels on the local magazine/entertainment show for *gulp* teens; Tv3’s Remaja.

We were to talk about comics. From three distinct point-of-views: The professional international artist (Adijin), the up-and-coming local artist (Me) and the die-hard ‘peminat tegar’ fans (Gecko). It was a closed recording, and it happened last Sunday (20 July 2008).

As Ntv7 is a sister company of Tv3 as part of the Media Prima family, i guess that’s why the recording was done at their studio in Glenmarie Shah Alam. Sampai sesat-sesat cari tempat dia. (Pictures courtesy of Adijin.)

Once we arrived, we were to be..”remaja-rized”. Heh. Make-up. And I thought my wedding was the last time I’d be wearing make-up.

And then we were to hang around until it came time for our segment.

It was pretty impressive to see how the hosts and crew did their jobs take by take.

But we were also busy taking our own pictures.

..Very..very..busy.

..Unfortunately, we didn’t take any pictures during the recording itself. It was kinda fun, two rounds of questions. Our comics were made into props, scattered on the table on the set. From DIY zines, to rare collectors items, to local gems..we had it all. Some examples: Saga Preview Book, Komikoo, Silent Hill, Din Teksi, Zine Alifstyle Orang Kuat, Sin City, Urban Comics, Civil War TPB, Ultimates 2 HC, Abe, Calvin & Hobbes, Dragonball, etc..

“Remaja” nyaaaa..hahahaha.

They even let us in here to see the other side of the recording process.

And then we went back for cendol and rojak at Subang 15. Hopefully the Remaja episode will show sometime around August (16th maybe). Will update with that til then.

Let’s put a smile on that face.

You will be very freaked out by The Joker.

You will say the new batsuit is cool, the batpod is awesome, the FX are crazy, the action insane. But in the end, you will be blown away by the story.

You will not feel good during the whole run of the movie. You will feel tension, you will feel your heart race, you will not have a moment to relax.

If you thought Ironman showed you how cool it is to be a superhero, The Dark Knight will show you how it can stress you out and push you to the edge.

You will be very freaked out by The Joker.

You will tell yourself there’s NO WAY Nolan’s gonna make another Batman movie and top this one.

If Batman Begins made you forget all the previous Batman movies, The Dark Knight will make you forget Batman Begins.

You will feel real fear. Real fear of the danger and threats and chaos done by a fictional character to a fictional city.

You will be very freaked out by The Joker.

And then there’s Two-Face.

Damn good movie. That’s why i’m so serious.

Cue the John Williams movie theme. Just an artwork inspired by Frank Quitely’s (All-Star Superman) rendition of Clark Kent.

Syok gila edisi kali ini, kerana tukang komik yang ada termasuk: Adijin, Popiaman, Kromosom, Lobak, Ben, Baba Chuah dan banyak lagi lah! Lukisan saya juga ada menyelit menyibuk tapi sekadar sebagai penghias artikel poolemik (yang kat bawah ni), serta satu lagi artikel (prosa untuk plebeian) dihiasi oleh lukisan kawan saga saya, Adifitri.
