"It's only through writing that I've ever been able to suppress life's personal disappointments. When I can't write I feel anxious and out of sorts and am easily riled, though I'm usually able to control my emotions..."
- Pramoedya Ananta Toer (The Mute's Soliloquy: A Memoir)
["Hanya dengan menulis aku mampu menekan segala kekecewaan peribadi hidup. Bila aku tidak menulis, aku merasa cemas & tidak keruan serta mudah gusar, walau selalunya aku bisa mengawal emosiku..."]

I'm not really a super-fan of superhero type of fiction though I do fancy all the magical exposure revealed in the storyline, especially when it comes to wisdom & philosophy of being strong in your weakness. Though I grew up in the shadow of Spider-Man (there were days I wish I was bitten by a spider that could make me crawl on walls!), I'm seriously a big fan of horror especially when it comes to fang, blood and venom. I love the mystical world of the underworld. So I have this one big comic project of my own that will satisfy my hunger in such storyline and it's called VAMP. But before I could elaborate more on the main storyline, I have this plan to create what I called the origin of VAMP that will introduce a human like creature called Prince Malar. 

VAMP comic project is meant for heavy readers that will pursue for international market, therefore don't expect too much on childish factor in its storyline but you can expect that this comic will not deliver any porno images or obscene plots. Planned as a one shot novel graphic, VAMP will deliver story that relates to the descents of Israelite, the hidden marks of mukhannathun and the mythical believe of fallen angels spelled by the image of Prince Malar.

The concept of the story will deliver early modernization where Prince Malar make a prudent appearance in the 80s from a region in Pakistan called Malar during the final years of cold war that revealed the rebellious movement in Afghanistan. Then the story ended with Malar missing in the midst of Malaysia racial conflict which continued by the story of VAMP that happened somewhere in our near future (with expand technology). The climax of the story will end by exposing the connection and birth history of Prince Malar discovered by his blood-sucking descendent known as Oressa

If you ask me how did I get the idea of creating this story? Frankly speaking the ideas has been with me since I knew how to draw. But the first to come was the image of Oressa I've created since I was a teenager, but the blood sucking images has been in my desire since I was little while the venomous snake factor, it has been in the folklore tale of my family ties. So combine everything all together plus the current issues and my experience back in during diploma/degree as a researcher/activist of UFOs/supernatural cases, my collective knowledge upon those will be spilled in this comic project I named it as VAMP.  

Insha-Allah, if everything goes according to plan, there'll be more to share about this comic that I plan to have it publish in the middle of year 2014. For now this year of 2013, I will start with the origin of Prince Malar... 

... because reality bites!

Secret Admirer: A Dove's Heart

Maria & Nizam Asari... today.

A name presently stated in her heart
A lovely being with the beautiful eyes
He smiles gracefully straight to her arms
Makes her smile intimately too much

She imagined him to dance with her
As a pair of two she seeks
She's dancing with a dove's man
He's the man who do the monkey's dance

He walks taller than her
He speaks less loud than her
But he's always comparable to her
Because he's half of her

A man of her destiny
A lover of her dream
A friend of her best indeed

No wonder he has her before she did
He's a conqueror she spoke to meet
He conquered her faithfully.
