When we last featured Malaysian-born Australian-based comics creator Stephen Kok in 2016, he had just released his debut graphic novel Tabby, which had been funded through crowd-funding platform Kickstarter (it raised about RM10,000).

The book, a dialogue-less tale about cats which Kok described at the time as “Romeo And Juliet with cats”, turned out to be a decent success for Kok in Australia and New Zealand, with public libraries in both countries featuring the book on their shelves.
