An 8-pager about why my comics never really see a finish.
Found these 3 years old files I did for Yongumix #7 (a zine by a collective I’m in; Yon Gumi) back in 2011. I’m not sure if it was me making amends or trying to give closure to why I was never able to finish my personal comics.
Truthfully, I did not finish Black Light because my interest towards Ultraman died during the Thai-Japan/Chaiyo-Tsuburaya feud.
At that time, I was presented an opportunity to create (and own) a new IP for a local monthly magazine called JOM! Thus Retrojak was born. It was amazing while it lasted - I was given free reign over writing to the technical details and execution. Like all good things, it came to an abrupt end when JOM! was discontinued.
Intipati started out of frustration towards the superficial world while I was working full time in Singapore. It started and halted in 2008 but now I am finding time to actually finish it.
Ultimately it’s all about making ends meet. I can be doing all these fun stories but they don’t pay my bills so the labour of love has become quite labourious.
