Going back over some older ground…because I never read a book about Singapore. Which is ridiculous.
The wait was worth it! On the recommendation of very smart book blogger, Bibloglobal, I picked up The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chey by Sonny Liew and I’m so very glad I did.
Dazzling. Brilliant. A complete vision executed flawlessly.
I don’t know – I COULD GO ON AND ON.
I’m blown away. It’s that good. And I won’t discuss it further, because I might ruin it for you. Just one more thing: don’t read any other reviews before you dig into this graphic novel. Wait until after and all shall be illuminated…trust me!

Singapore is in the house!
Hmmm…off of the top of my head, what do I know about Singapore? It’s a city-state, close to Malaysia. You can’t chew gum. They publicly cane people for breaking the rules. I always order Singapore noodles at my local Chinese restaurant.
I feel confident that there is a lot more going on than that…We shall find out…
