The Comics Society (Singapore) was the brainchild of established local comic artist Mr Wee Tian Beng, and originated from a vision to creating a sustainable and vibrant local comics industry capable of producing high quality workfor the global market.
9 other like minded industry professionals were gathered in the initial core group, with each contributing their area of expertise and passion, and on 8 January 2007 the Comics Society (Singapore) was officially founded.
Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts and Member of Parliament Mr Baey Yam Keng was the presiding Guest-of-Honour at the ceremony, and Mr Wee Tian Beng assumed the position of Society president.
