Alfonso Wong Kar Hei, the man behind the Old Master Q or Lao Fu Zi comics we all loved as kids, has passed on due to old age.
Wong passed away 1 Jan 2017 from natural causes at age 92.
His comics centered around the life of Old Master Q and his antics, along with his friends Big Potato, Mr. Chin and Miss Chan.
Readers both local and overseas have enjoyed his works, and so did I as a child; my grandparents’ house having a volume or two, not necessarily in English.
He will be sorely missed, but his comics will live on in our memory and in our hearts. Rest in peace.
