Comics Cambodge

Working on a Comics Exhibition for Phnom Penh, this October.

(Of course, I will offload much of the real work to my hardworking assistant Piseth.)

Digging up some amazing art and information. Most comics artists are paid very little, and rarely get back their original art. Copyright is virtually nonexistent.

The comic below is from the late 80’s, when the Vietnamese still occupied Cambodia.

I was amazed to get a copy, no one is archiving or saving these! The artist (Ao Yuthea) was kind enough to lend me a copy to scan.
