We are an artist collective dedicated to the advancement of the Southeast Asian comics scene.
unnamed connects artists, writers, editors, curators, publishers, educators and more across the region to raise up ASEAN comics onto the world stage.
We seek to bridge the gap from artist to public, regional to international, and home to country. We strive to engage in comics outreach and advocacy across industries, build a support network for creators, and develop artistic and educational programs that push the comics scene to its fullest potential.
Our website hosts various resources, databases and materials tailored to Southeast Asia.

What We Do

Ambassador Tables

An exclusive service for creators in the collective. Unnamed rents a group table in selected comics and publishing festivals to host creators’ books.

Pandan Press

An upcoming micropress for anthologies and original graphic novels with a Southeast Asian flavour that defies convention.

Comics Residency

A residency for aspiring SEA comic creators to immerse themselves in an intensive knowledge sharing and networking session.

Creative Workshops

Engaging workshops with professionals about making comics, doing art, and building a creative career. We offer workshops for all ages and skill levels.

Comics Outreach

Establish networks and relationships with the regional and international comics/publishing industry, as well as to members of the public.
