The cover of 1985's APAzine.

Among my stack of comics treasures, which include John Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men, George Perez’s New Teen Titans, Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing and Walter Simonson’s The Mighty Thor, there is one unique piece of Malaysian comics history – APAzine, a 100% made-in-Malaysia “fanzine” published in 1985!

Apa? What? Well, those born in the age of the Internet probably would not understand, but for my generation, if you wanted to make a name for yourself in comics, there was a lot more effort and collaboration involved.
