The Superheroes Comic Art Fair is co-produced by Roots Studio and CapitaLand Malaysia Mall Trust (CMMT)1.

Since the incubation of a Toys and Hobbies cluster on Level 2 in 2016, Sungei Wang Plaza is slowly gaining popularity among toy lovers and hobbyists as an avenue to hunt for their favourite collectibles.

“We have in the past organised several toys and hobbies-themed events at Sungei Wang Plaza to attract a new profile of shoppers to visit Sungei Wang Plaza. As the efforts have proven to be successful, this time, The Superheroes Comic Art Fair 2017 is a larger scale event and will see several comic artists display their works at the fair. Happening alongside the comic art fair is the Superhero Toy and Collectible Exhibition which would have an exciting auction of limited collectibles being carried out,” said Elise Lim, centre manager of CMMT’s units in Sungei Wang Plaza.

For the comic exhibition, there will be works from three featured artists specially curated for the show and there will also be a showcase of black-and-white comic lineart. There will also be a highlight on the works and comic production process of established local creators such as Michael Chuah and Redcode. Creative group Fusion Wayang Kulit will bring to life their interpretation of famous superheroes through the usage of wayang kulit puppets.
