It’s a magazine btw..
After saw an advertise on this magazine, i cant help myself from keep on searching that magazine around, to be exact at kuantan. yes,its quite rare plus being in east coast everything is very hard to find. currently we got nearest Popular Bookstore at Kemasik, Terengganu. but the store is really dissapointed which is very rare of art/photography/comics type books. not to be racist, i found its too much books in chinese, while population of people reading chinese is lower than 20% around here. for me its a waste, while u’re having a low no of chinese customers, u put lot of chinese books. some the racks should be utililsed for more universal books ie. art/photography/comics which i believed have a lot more followers here. once again, i’m not racist. sorry my fellow chinese friends. nothing to do with skin color.
finally i found this mag at MyNews at Suria KLCC. hoaahh, finally!
its POPCORN! with ‘on the cutting-edge of comics art’ tag. The contents is more on comics art with one-short comics and pin-up from various top comic artist in asia especially from Malaysia.
Interview with Tan Eng Huat (kutu)
There are 9 pages of interview with Kutu, an international artist from malaysia with thumbnails and pin-up from him. its great interview. very amaze with him, have a chance to draw world famous characters like batman, silver surfer and ghost rider. superb!
lots of pin ups by malaysian famous like kromosom, kidchan, adijin, baba chuah, virus-AC74(now i knew he is a she), kaoru and lot more. and of course great pin-ups from asian artist (singapore, hongkong, taiwan etc).

And there’s comic by puppeteer! i love his painting very much. since reading ‘Forgotten by Puppeteer‘ graphic novel, i fall in love with his story telling style. great one. there another couple of comics by puyuh and redcode.
'silent revolution chains' by puppeteer
another best part is interview with China’s Benjamin Chan. with lots of pin-ups from him. worth to read interview. i think everybody would fall in love with his painting.
