The project to be proposed aims at investigating the societal image and ideas implanted in the prevailing comics in each other. As two of the most active popular cultural commodities producers and consumers in East Asia, the inter-cultural exchange and transformation, and mutual influence between Japan and Hong Kong are very phenomenal. To study the inter-relation of popular cultures between them, and its implications, are crucial to the further understanding on the contemporary intra-Asian cultural exchange and development.
