Comics are not only for entertainment, but promote intercultural exchange as well. In this panel, we hear from award-winning comic artists from the Philippines (Peejay Catacutan, Carlo Vergara), Vietnam (Nguyễn Thành Phong), and Indonesia (Aji Prasetyo) as they talk about the potential of comics to bridge the cross-cultural gaps between various countries in ASEAN, and how to make comics more accessible to all readers in the region.
