SEARCHING FOR COMICS IN HONG KONG
By Steven Miller
Néih hóu! Greetings from Hong Kong!
I recently spent a month in Hong Kong for work. It was incredibly exciting, but being in one of the most densely populated places on Earth can actually be quite lonely. If you’re not in the heart of Hong Kong, and don’t speak any Cantonese, it can be quite difficult to make connections and have companions on the island.
I’ve always been able to connect with people who are interested in comics; it’s a subject easy to debate, but is finite in scale so that most fans are at least familiar with most important stories. I was also curious to know what comic shops must look like in a city of over seven million people. So I set out to explore Hong Kong and discover comic shops along the way.
