This features a script & accompanying page of artwork. (No official launch ceremony.)

Full opening of the ACAS Comics Exhibition
Our works will be featured throughout the museum in celebration of the launch of an International Comics Stamp Collection. Thanks to our writers, some of our works are to be displayed with certain levels of inter-activity, so viewers are further inspired to view the visuals.

A crash course in creating comics - digitally!
