Award-winning graphic novelist Sonny Liew blurs the lines between reality and fiction with this three-time Eisner Award-winning story that traces the parallel lives of the titular Charlie Chan and modern Singapore. In 1954, a young Charlie Chan Hock Chye 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, this 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.
