Miscellaneous Symptoms of Love Comics Originals Exhibition ∣ Special Event “A Card for Two, True Hearts True Love” ∣ Book Purchase Special Offer
Presenter: Hong Kong Arts Centre (Comix Home Base)
Special Thanks: Quire Limited
Lai Tat Tat Wing’s four-panel comic Three Senses of Youth 1234 is a collection of 600 stories of laughter, mystery, irony, horror, action and suspense, most of them are fruitless love stories, peppered with miscellaneous symptoms of love that are all too familiar to everyone!
When youth equates to love and the three senses fall victims to miscellaneous symptoms of it, this collection is the probe into it. Lai Tat Tat Wing first created Three Senses of Youth 12 during 1997-2001, the thought of “rejuvenation” came across him in 2019-2020, resulting in this Three Senses of Youth 1234. What is love? Is love eternal? Twenty years have passed, and nothing changed much!
Three Senses of Youth 1234 is a “love error” guidebook on how couples date. Boys and girls, for the sake of your own health, get a copy as precaution!
