Stormy Mind of a Young Girl

More pulp classic action for you: this time by Uth Roeun, artist behind the comic adaptations of Tum Teav and Torn Chey, formerly of the Ministry of Education, now running the Association of Cambodian Artist Friends which is trying to hang on to its workshop located just below the temple at Wat Phnom. Uth Roeun worked both before and after the war years; the earliest work we have on file for him is 1966.

(There are a host of literary awards in Cambodia, and someday I’ll get around to publishing a list. They don’t pay a lot but you’d be surprised how many people are motivated by them.)
