Unexplored territory in the rapidly expanding field of the study of comics and comic art, Southeast Asia has been home to a rich cartooning tradition for decades. This unique collection brings together veteran and emerging scholars to illuminate the various dimensions of the region's comic art, such as its history and contemporary developments. The contributors to Southeast Asian Cartooningoffer insights into the entire spectrum of comic art, including political and editorial cartoons; newspaper comic strips of both the gag and serialized adventure varieties; comic books in various sizes, shapes, genres, and formats; graphic novels and book-length comics; and humor magazines containing comedic articles, illustrated jokes, and comic strips. They also tackle a range of issues and themes, such as the transnational public sphere in Burma, national identity in Malaysia, and the chauvinism of Chinese cartoonists in Singapore. Offering English-speaking readers entrance into a fascinating new universe of cartooning, this well-illustrated book will be essential for comics fans and scholars alike.
