Conquerors and thieves

A Malaysian-made tale of aliens and ancient secrets.

AS the nation has developed, so too has our local comics scene expanded and improved in recent years. After finishing Meant For Each Other (MFEO), I now believe that that local comics can be compared favourably to more internationally-known Japanese manga.

MFEO is a comedy-adventure drawn by Lu Wun Khang, who uses the pen name Zint in all his works. The artist/writer, known for stories like the Under 18 series, The Adventures Of Kroit and 2 Dudes, has more than 20 titles under his belt.

His latest work deals with extraterrestrial beings who invade Earth in search of an ancient power. Malaysian locations like the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the jungles of Sarawak figure prominently in the story.

In brief, MFEO revolves around a 17-year-old boy named Feroz who unsuspectingly swallows an “inkrip”, the energy source of his newfound alien pet called Zouk. Feroz is joined by his friends, Amri and Isma, who coincidentally meet other alien beings similar to Zouk, from the planet Tation.

These beings are on a quest: to find the Mazazon, a power that will enable its wielder to rule Tation. They are constantly under attack from other alien beings that also seek it, only for evil purposes.

As the group closes in on the prize, it discovers an ancient secret that has been lost in time, just waiting to be uncovered.

With so much drama in the plot, the comic is gripping and a delight to read.
