(This work received an invitation to participant at the FEVER - Comics Publishing Matching Session of the Hong Kong and France Comics Creation Exchange Programme, organised by Hong Kong Arts Centre (Comix Home Base) in 2021
A short comic about a boy trapped in the space between the objective world and subjective reality, a criticism on gun violence. It portrays how the impacts of past trauma can resurface from our subconscious later on in life, leading to the feeling of being trapped and the crying of our inner child.
Year 40.....what would it be?
After 40 years, the boy has finally died, within an image of his own.
The number 40 symbolises a period of testing, trial or probation. Moses has lived forty years in the desert before God selected him to lead his people out of slavery. The Hebrew people lived in the lands outside of the promised land for "forty years”.
What is it with the number 40? Why does it seem to exist in so many gods’ calendars?
Or is it some Jungian synchronicity?
40 days for the temptation
40 years of test of conscience
shredding of the snake’s skin and transformation
40 years after crucifixion
years became days
rise of a new generation
Who are you?
beauty for creating fear
in the universe of numbers
Year 40, are we already here?
