Sonny Liew is a Singaporean comic book creator and painter. He is an important figure both in Singaporean comics and as a prominent representative of a minority group within the American comic book industry. He has worked with Disney, First Second, Marvel, and DC. His most famous works include the Eisnernominated Shadow Hero (2014) with Gene Luen Yang, Dr Fate (2015), Malinky Robot (2011), and, most recently, The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye (2016). The latter work, famously, had its funding publically withdrawn by the Singapore’s National Arts Council. Sonny has a distinctive artistic style. His works often engage with both Singaporean politics and the place for Asian creators and characters in American comics. I communicated with Sonny by e-mail in March 2016.
