Lots of talking about Malinky Robot and other things by Mr. Sonny Liew of late, for starters, there’s one at Forces of Geek!

Then there’s a podcast at Fictional Frontiers! Starts at 44:30s!

And then there’s one at Time Out Singapore!

So much chatter! Maybe better just to head over to the Facebook Page below :p

When will someone ask him where he keeps the cookies and chocolate treats?

 

On the Atlantic!

No, no, not the ocean, but the magazine, at least online!

Mr. Hans Villarica talks to Mr. Sonny Liew, and Mr. Villarica says the stories are ” thoughtful and original… made all the more compelling by his muted but striking coloring style.”

Mr. Sonny says that we live in a  “science-fiction world without evil plots or conspiracies”, but I don’t believe a word of it!

Comics Should be Good!

4 Aug

Comics Should Be Good! And Mr Brian Cronin at Comic Book Resources CSBG thinks that Malinky Robot  is “…a stunning mixture of whimsy and sadness, as the two young leads of Liew’s Malinky Robot tales live in a world where technology is futuristic but the world itself is still pretty darn dusty and sad looking… a powerful work and well worth you picking up.”

What’s the Least Good Comic ever? But there are so many good ones! Yotsuba! Yummy Fur! Doraemon! Bone! Judge Dredd! Charley’s War!

 

More Malinky Robot on the Interweb

2 Jul

Over at the Beat, Heidi MacDonalds sez: “A collected edition of MALINKY ROBOT, Sonny Liew’s charming series about two urchins in a city full of giant robots, is coming out in August, and here’s the cover. Liew is the artist of MY FAITH IN FRANKIE, Marvel’s SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, and many other fine comics; he also edited two volumes of the Eisner-nominated LIQUID CITY, the Singapore comics anthology… Liew is a fantastically talented artist; MALINKY ROBOT comes out from Image in August and it’s well worth searching out.”

On Page 45 (it’s a real page yet not!), Stephen writes that Malinky Robot has ” a dark humoured but child-like sensibility. If Marc Hempel and Miyazaki collaborated, it would feel very much like this.”

Miyazaki! This is the best song!

And over at Ghetto Manga, Samax is excited about the new comic!

Releasing the Press!

Image Comics’ Mainky Robot Press Release is out!

Berkeley, CA – 1 July 2011 –The captivating world and quirky characters detailed by award-winning artist Sonny Liew’s (LIQUID CITY VOL. 1 and 2, My Faith in Frankie, Wonderland, Sense and Sensibility) loose and emotive watercolor-drenched pencil work are set to charm readers in August, with the release of MALINKY ROBOT: COLLECTED STORIES AND OTHER BITS from Image Comics.

A recipient of the Xeric Award and Best Science Fiction Comic Album award at the Utopiales International SF Festival, MALINKY ROBOT blends dystopic sci-fi and indie sensibilities into a uniquely oddball world, where street urchins Atari and Oliver scrounge, steal bicycles and watch Giant Robot movies.

Liew says, “The stories of MALINKY ROBOT have always been the ones that I feel most personally connected with, from their rhythms and structure, to the character and architectural designs. It’s very exciting to see them collected together in this book.”

MALINKY ROBOT not only includes short stories like “Stinky Fish Blues” and “Karakuri” from the LIQUID CITY and Flight anthologies, but also a gallery of Liew’s concept and sketch art, along with pinups by incredible artists such as Mike Allred, Roger Langridge and Skottie Young. Writer Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Deadpool, Wonder Woman) described the collection as “[a] book so full of wonders and treasures it feels like you should need a pirate’s map to find it. A stunningly gorgeous mix of urban fantasy and charming adventure that I plan to read until the spine falls off.”

MALINKY ROBOT: COLLECTED STORIES AND OTHER BITS TP (JUN110503), a 128-page full color collection of short sequential art stories retailing for $16.99, will be available at a comic store near you on August 3, 2011. It is available for pre-orders from Diamond Comics, and from retailers such as Amazon. For more information, please visit www.malinkyrobot.com.
