The Story of LKY #2 - Lee Kuan Yew: Road to Independence
The Story of LKY is a two-part tribute to Singapore’s late founding father and Minister Mentor, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. The manga is a collaborative effort between Shogakukan Asia and Japan’s manga authors in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Singapore-Japan relations. Tapping onto Singapore’s transformative period, the biographic comic highlights Mr. Lee’s inspirational life, and traces the significant historic events that would shape Singapore into the county it is today.
World War II had ended, and Singapore is back under British rule. Having completed his studies, Lee Kuan Yew returns home to a nation that is ready for change. But will rising communist activities hurt Singapore’s chances for a merger with Malaya? With renewed resolve, the fight for Singapore’s Independence begins!
