His many works include directing Singaporean cartoon series The Adventures of Nano Boy by Scrawl Studios, and illustrating comic bestsellers such as Legendary Tales of Singapore and Lieutenant Adnan and the Last Regiment.


    Past/Current/Upcoming Works
    1. Lieutenant Adnan and the Last Regiment ( http://asiapacbooks.com.sg/Book/304/Lieutenant-Adnan-and-the-Last-Regiment)
    Lieutenant Adnan bin Saidi was a man who fought valiantly to defend Singapore during the Japanese invasion in February 1942. He, along with the rest of the Malay Regiment, battled the Japanese soldiers on Bukit Chandu. These great men were Singapore's last defence and fought bravely to the end, despite being captured, and even tortured. Narrated by the son of Lieutenant Adnan's son, Mokhtar, this comic book tells the story of Lieutenant Adnan's life - not only depicting the infamous Battle of Bukit Chandu, but also the events before the critical battle and itsrepercussions thereafter. Through this book, readers would gain a deeper insight into Lieutenant Adnan's admirable character, as they will be given a glimpse of who he was, beyond his role as a soldier: a husband and father.

    2. Hua Mulan: Legendary Woman Warrior ( http://asiapacbooks.com.sg/Book/312/Hua-Mulan-Legendary-Woman-Warrior )
    This comic book tells of the inspirational story of Hua MuIan, the legendary Chinese female warrior who pledges to fight for her family and country in the most unusual way: by disguising herself as a man – a filial "son" who takes the place of her aged and sick father at the battlefront. Quick-witted and well-skilled in martial arts, Hua MuIan fights valiantly and scores many victories throughout her many years in the army, never once having her real identity revealed. It is only until after the war, however, that our heroine reveals the truth. Stunned by the revelation and greatly moved by her story, Mulan's comrades express their utmost respect and admiration for her great courage and skills, not least her loyalty and devotion to family and country. The story of Hua Mulan has inspired countless generations through the centuries. With stirring and unforgettable scenes brought vividly to life by creators Xu Deyuan and Jiang Wei, this comic book captures the legendary Chinese heroine at her most brilliant, ensuring that the legend of Mulan, that most enduring symbol of loyalty and filial piety, continues to live on.              More company information available at www.asiapacbooks.com
