International Journal of Comic Art Staff Visit Cambodia

i Jun 28, 2010 Comments Off by

Editors John Lent and Xu Ying recently toured Southeast Asia, and wasted no time in tracking down local comic artists. Their time in Cambodia saw them visit Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.


After meeting with creators and academics, it looks like some plans are in motion to develop a ‘symposium’ of Cambodia comics articles in an upcoming issue of the Journal.

(Above, left to right: academic John Lent, artists Moeu ‘Vuth’ Diyadaravuth, Chan Pisey, Nhek Sophaleap, Prom Vorleak, Try Samphos, translator Soeun Klo.)
Journal staff also met classic comics artist Uth Roeun, and comic chronicler John Marston.
We will keep you posted as papers and plans develop!

After a quick breakdown of tools, topic and format we jumped in, and shortly after took digital photos of the results.  (When would we get another chance?)
