Old Master Q

Old Master Q

Otaku Zone would like to say happy birthday to Old Master Q! For this year is the 50th anniversary of the iconic Hong Kong comic strip Lao Fu Zi, more commonly known in English as Old Master Q.

The Hong Kong character and his friends, Big Potato and Mr Chin, have been read by generations of Hongkongers, and can be found all over the world, wherever there is a Chinese community.

The strip, which first appeared in newspapers and magazines in Hong Kong in 1962, was created by artist Alfonoso Wong, who drew it using the pen name of his eldest son, Joseph Wong Chak

Old Master Q took on social and political issues of the time while shining a highly satirical light upon them. Over the decades, as society and its problems evolved, so did the strip. In the 1980s, Alfonso Wong retired to live in the US and now leads a leisurely life of fishing and reading poetry.

Since then, his eldest son Joseph has been the main creative force keeping the local hero going.

To celebrate the character's half century, Galerie Huit will be hosting "Old Master Q's Secret - Old Master Q's ancestors are aliens?", a solo exhibition of Joseph Wong's paintings and comic strips.

It will run until July 31, at G/F, No 8, St Francis Street, Wan Chai. The gallery's is open Monday to Saturday from 11am - 7pm; Sundays (only by appointment), and closed on public holidays.
