Tally-Ho: Liquid City launch & Garfield Run

tallyho

After a rough couple of weeks at work, I was so happy to head to Books Kinokuniya for the launch of Liquid City, volume 3.

Liquid City is a collection of short comics from Southeast Asian creators, published by Image Comics. I really enjoy reading it, because it’s such a diverse and interesting collection of stories with a very unique Southeast Asian voice.

And I’m more than happy that my good friend Max is in Volume 3!

The launch took place at the main store, and it was really crowded. And my camera died, so I wasn’t able to get good pictures ):

Volume 3 is themed around a simple question: if you knew the end of the world was coming, what would you do?

As you can tell, work started on the book back in 2012 with the idea that it would be funny for it to come out before the Mayan Apocalypse. Which, of course, did not arrive as scheduled. (Neither did the book, heh.)

The launch was hosted by Nicholas of Geek Crusade, another excellent local pop culture site. He asked some great questions, and the answers were genuinely funny.

I haven’t had the chance to grab the book, but I hope to soon! I saw some pretty interesting pages as I was looking through a copy.

You can still get Volume 1 (Kinokuniya / Amazon) and Volume 2 (Kinokuniya / Amazon), or check out preview pages from Volumes 1 and 2 at the Liquid City site. Volume 3 is available Kinokuniya’s online store too!

We couldn’t stay for the whole thing because we were rushing off to another thing: the Garfield Run! Well. Sarah, Joelyn and Max were running. I was the official bag watcher because I don’t run.

Joelyn and Max were taking part in the couple’s run, and yay, they did the 5km together! Yay!

So disgustingly cute.

Sarah’s category of 3km fun run started later, so we walked around a bit first and stumbled upon a Milo mascot.

I don’t get why people subject themselves to ruunning in this kind of heat, but hey, if they’re happy, why not?
