|10:51AM Dec 14, 2012
Local cartoonist Zulkiflee SM Anwar Ulhaque is releasing a new book of “cartoons for the people” continuing his message of “corruption and abuse of power by the BN government”.
The book, titled Lawak & Lawan (Fun & Fight) boasts 108 full colour pages compilation of his cartoons posted on Malaysiakini and other websites this year.
“What I want to convey is that corruption is not just a political issue, but also is a despicable crime because it involves money,” said Zunar (right), expressing his intention to continue raising public awareness on the issue.
“Hence, in this book, there will be a lot of cartoons depicting the sufferings of the rakyat due to corruption by the BN leaders and their cronies.
“The title ‘Fun & Fight’ also reflects my determination as a cartoonist to fight with the rakyat to topple the BN regime,” he said in a statement.
Work on sale over weekend
Zunar’s books are retailed at RM25 each and can be ordered online through his website.
The book will also be available over a two-day sales event to be launched this weekend at Amcorp Mall, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
The prominent cartoonist is known for his politically controversial work and was arrested on Sept 24, 2010 for sedition and his books seized. He has since challenged his arrest and confiscation of his works in court.
Three of his books: 1 Funny Malaysia, Perak Darul Kartun and Isu Dalam Kartun were banned by the Home Ministry deemed unsuitable for public reading under the Printing Presses and Publications Act.
Last year, he was honoured with the ‘Courage in Editorial Cartooning’ award by the US-based Cartoonists Rights Network International (CRNI).
