Speech Bubble - A Celebration of Comics in Singapore, 2 to 30 September 2016



Next month, the Red Dot Island comics scene will be given the spotlight in a special almost month-long event called Speech Bubble held at Basement 1 of the National Library, from 2 to 30 September.

Organized by media company Potato Productions and local comic book artist Sonny Liew. Sonny has also been in the spotlight in recent times, mainly due to the accolades he received for his brilliant brainchild, "The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye". "The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye" won the Singapore Literature Prize for fiction this year - the first graphic novel to receive such a recognition!

Speech Bubble event consists of an exhibition of original works, books and comics-related collectors items, like those by featured artists Johnny Lau, who is best known for the iconic Mr Kiasu comic series, and pioneer Malaysian artist Nora Abdullah, who published her first comic called "Cik Siti Wan Kembang" in 1955. Other creative works on display include those by Sonny Liew, Eric Khoo, Troy Chin, Otto Fong, Koh Hong Teng, Colin Goh, Gary Zhu, Cheah Sinann and many, many more!

Join AsiaPop Comicon's Contest and Win A Chance To Attend the Hollywood Red Carpet Premiere of Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War"!

Now that WB Pictures/ DC Comic's battle of the superheroes movie "Batman v Superman" has been released at the theatres, fans are now eagerly looking forward to the other team showdown which will happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As a follow-up to the last Avengers movie "Age of Ultron" as well as "Captain America: Winter Soldier", the next Marvel superheros movie "Captain America: Civil War" will see friends become foes.

Upon facing a call for accountability from the collateral damage caused by the battles with the aliens, Ultron, plus the costs faced by yet another international incident, Tony Stark/ Iron Man pushes for a government body to oversee the actions of the superheroes. In an effort to protect his friend Bucky coupled with his desire that the superheroes should be able to protect humanity without restraints, Steve Rogers/ Captain America goes against Tony Stark, causing a fracture between the former team members.

Hello Kitty Go Around Singapore Faces The Ire of Fans

*Angry MEORRwWsssWSs*
*HISsssSSSSSsssssssss*

Hello Kitty may not have a mouth, but her fans sure do!

What was marketed as a fun and exclusives-filled event called Hello Kitty Goes Round Singapore, drew the ire of fans just within hours of its opening at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore earlier today.

According to the announcement given to the media, several exclusives, games and special Kitty events were to take place during the show.

As the Red Dot Islanders know too well.... DO NOT Mess, Ever, with the Hello Kitty Fans! Never, Ever. They are Fierce. *shudder*

Red Dot Diva heard that early bird attendees (who mainly were also going for the SG50 pack) got enraged when they found out that entry tickets were being sold at a much lower price on site. To add to that was the devastating realization that the super-exclusive paper figurines which were to be part of the SG50 package were not produced "due to unforeseen production issues". The hardcore Kitty fans have also noticed other items like artbooks missing from their goodie bags.

Here is Special Agent H.Y.'s report:

The Walking Dead Live Fan Event in Singapore - Part 1 of Squees


There's simply no better way to kick off a geeky year than being in the thick of blood, gore and beautiful biceps at "The Walking Dead" Live event held at La Salle College of the Arts yesterday.

The fan event organized by Fox Movies Premium, Starhub and PR firm SPRG was one of the most vibrant and fun local fan event Red Dot Diva has attended. Made even more awesome of course, by the two super-popular celebrities from the series - Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, who were very willing to please their fans here by participating in a zombie obstacle course.

Prior to them arriving in Singapore for this special event, Norman Reedus attended and presented at the People's Choice Awards where "The Walking Dead" won the Favourite Cable TV Drama and after the telecast, Andrew Lincoln was awarded Favourite TV Anti-Hero for the character of Rick Grimes. On Twitter, Norman seemed to be having so much fun at the awards, taking selfies, accepting the award on behalf of the TWD family and 'hanging out' with Joseph Morgan and RDJ!
