Affiliated creative works have been developed from comics.

Such works range from films, TV drama series, novels, games, to toys,

which have impressed readers for generations.

Background

Hong Kong comics’ influence has gone beyond time and space, especially in Asia and among Chinese communities worldwide. Being a mature rival to Japanese comics, several Hong Kong comic works have been translated into more than 10 languages for readers all around the world.

To help Hong Kong comics explore the Mainland Chinese market, a Hong Kong Ani-Com Carnival was held in Shanghai during the World Expo 2010, Shanghai China. More than 20 figurines of Hong Kong classic comic characters were displayed at the Carnival which attracted more than 500,000 visitors.

With the aim to further promote Hong Kong comics, the world’s first comic-themed avenue of comic stars is set up by the Hong Kong Comics & Animation Federation,

with the sponsorship from Create Hong Kong of the HKSAR Government. It is called the “Hong Kong Avenue of Comic Stars”, which is set to open on at the end of August 2012. Situated in Kowloon Park (East Wing) at Tsim Sha Tsui, and next to the renowned tourist spot, Park Lane Shoppers Boulevard, the Avenue features the painted figurines of local comic characters and handprints of famous local comic artists, as well as information on Hong Kong’s comic industry.

The objectives for setting up the Hong Kong Avenue of Comic Stars are:

Raising the international 

status of Hong Kong’s

comic industry

Commending the

achievements of Hong Kong

comic artists and encouraging

more great works from them

Creating a new tourist

attraction for Hong Kong

Promoting Hong Kong’s

comic industry and artists
