Media Release — In September, you’ll be able to explore the mutable landscapes of LIQUID CITY, VOL. 2, an anthology collecting work from celebrated Southeast Asian creators. Editor Sonny Liew promises unforgettable tales of cities and the people who live in them.
LIQUID CITY, VOL. 2 once again brings together creators from Southeast Asia to offer an amazing diversity of stories. From Lat’s vignette of a soccer game in Malaysia, to Ivan Song’s poignant near-future tale of childhood memories, to Vietnamese artist Nguyen Thahn Phong’s account of his adventures in South Korea, this collection showcases an incredible variety of styles and genres. War, fantasy, drama, road trips and Robot Rabbits — you’ll find it all and more in LIQUID CITY, VOL. 2.
“The name itself — LIQUID CITY — is meant to suggest the fluidity and ever-changing nature of cities,” relates Liew. “The second volume of LIQUID CITY features both established creators, as well as new voices, offering a fascinating glimpse of the exciting work in comics coming out of Southeast Asia.”
LIQUID CITY, VOL. 2, a 312-page full-color trade paperback from Image Comics, will be on sale for $29.99 on September 29, 2010.
