Warning: Heavy photos ahead.
Anyone here read local comics?? Please raise up your paw
Two weeks ago, I was asked to cover for the 100% Gempak Starz (previously known as Malaysia Comic Carnival). It was a 3 days event from 26th – 28th November 2011 with lots of activities for the comic fans.
100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition
There was an artwork display from the finalists of 100% Creative Fever Multimedia Competition where contestant need to come up with their own version of animation/application/merchandise ideas etc based on Gempak’s comics.
Here are some of the entries.
I like this!! so cuteee!
Talented bunch! ^^
They were also selling all the Gempak comics and comic novels there with complete editions
Luckily they did as I managed to buy one to complete my Lawak Kampus (Kuso High School) collection.
I’m a big fan of this comic. Support local comic~~ XD
There’s a lot of people buying and I was given a number to wait for my turn.
While waiting for them to call my number, I walked around the area..
and got caught by this sweet promoter.
They were promoting this Chinese online game (which I forgot the name of) and telling how awesome and popular the game is etc.
I felt bad for them for wasting their energy and time in pursuing me as I don’t play Chinese language games and I already quit online gaming since the birth of Miao&WafuPafu. XD (err.. i quit a lot of stuffs for Miao&WafuPafu LOL)
Nevertheless, thanks to them for their time and to kill mine while waiting for my call. XD
Soon after that I went to redeem my comic book, I took a photo of the rest of the promoters on my way out.
After I took my book. I walked into this section of awesomeness!!
A section of special customized booth by our local comic artist!! Darn, they are so creative!!
Check out this Onsen styled booth. One of the most popular there.
that comes with a peeking hole. Many people was lining up just to have a peek.
Don’t ask me what I saw in there. *cover face XD*

My idol!! The comic artist for Lawak Kampus (Kuso High School)
There were a couple of autograph session and each session three comic artists will sign for the fans.
Check out the queue @@.
Hopefully, one day I also have a chance of having my own comic autograph session and there’s actually people and cats attending it. Oh wait, I need to come out with my own book before that. @@
The autograph session was long as the comic artists didn’t just sign the comics but..
draw on them!!!
GARGHH!! Y I NO bring my comics!!
While Neko, Jo and Keith was signing on the stage, the rest was interviewed at the booth.
There was also a cosplay competition held on that day. Some of the cosplayers were good!
Every time I saw people cosplaying, it reminds me of the very first cosplayer friends I had and met in Hong Kong. I miss them and Hong Kong too T_T
After that, Fakhrul Anour, the editor of Gempak gave an opening speech on the event, Gempak and also local comic industry.
And ended with a group photo of the comic artists from Art Square Group.
Oh, do support our local comic artist They’re really good!! Too bad I wasn’t able to have some talks and interviews with the comic artists as I was kinda short of time. I having a short meetup with the other comic bloggers later that.
It was a funny moment where the professionals comic artist at one side and us, the amateurs just right opposite at the KFC and some of us dreamed to be a comic artists. XD
Anyway, that ends my cover of the event. Hope I get the chance to attend the event again.
Oh before I go, have a Great Caturday night all!!!
