In a sector of a certain galaxy, pork including the traditional roasted version called charsiew, has been banned.

Red Dot Diva thought "Charsiew Space" was such a lively and hilarious comic that she recently sent a copy of it to Paul Levitz (formerly the president and publisher of DC Comics) as a small birthday gift . He thought Benjamin's art was "charming".
Today is #PaulLevitz's birthday. If you could sit him down to talk about the history of comics, especially in DC, and in other various general topics, you will learn and be enlightened by so many things and information. He is a rare kind of man (so far in my short life) who lights up thousands of my brain cells at one time. I sent Paul a copy of my friend's little self-published comic #CharsiewSpace as a small birthday gift and he said, "Benjamin's art is charming, and it's making me itch for a local NY restaurant called Pig Heaven..." Happy birthday, Paul!! 🎈🎂 🎈 🎉 Wishing you more fun and happy birthday years to come! #Comics #Singapore #Malaysia #artist #writer #CharsiewSpace #books
