In January 2016, COSH Studios brought together a collective of comic artists and writers eager to share their stories of Singapore Heritage. “Our heritage shouldn’t just be confined to history lessons and the classroom,” comic historian Lim Cheng Tju says. “These comics are fiction, but they have aspects of local history and places in them. And when readers can relate to these stories, there’s always the chance that they will want to find out more about the hidden corners or undiscovered stories in Singapore.”

Three comics will be launched tomorrow at the Singapore Writers Festival from 8:30PM until 9:30PM at the Arts House: Live through Singapore in the 1910s through five different people in the Guidebook to Nanyang Diplomacy by Lim Cheng Tju and Benjamin Chee. Listen in to the politics of food and business in the Coalition of the Savoury Spare Parts by Koh Hong Teng and Oh Yong Hwee. Or run into the Bukit Brown Caretaker in a place where many Singaporeans called their Final Resting Place – James Tan will help you with that.

Four more titles will be published by March 2018, featuring writer Dave Chua and artists Don Low and Cheah Sinann as some of the many names to release their books then.
