It's the battle against the pandemic like you’ve never seen it before. The notorious Covid-19, depicted as a monstrous, heavily muscled green alien figure, out to wreak havoc on the world. And various politicians and public figures, many also depicted as cool, overly muscled figures, all rise to fight him.

In the past few pandemic months, comic book artist Ernest Ng has been drawing web cartoons about current affairs in the country and abroad.
