Comics is a form of art where information is conveyed primarily via sequential graphic narratives. As a popular mass media, comics has existed across global cultures and history in a variety of forms, evolving from newspaper editorial cartoons, to syndicated comic strips, comic books and graphic novels, dealing with a wide variety of themes and genres integral to the expressions of cultural identity. The study of comics has recently gained traction globally, yet comprehensive documentations of Singapore comics culture remains scarce.
