Kang Jing (KJ) is a Singaporean Graphic Novelist and the visionary behind Chiral Comics. KJ entered into the industry in 2019 with the release of his debut comic series, “The World My Arena”, which was successfully funded through Kickstarter. Garnering substantial attention, the martial arts series received coverage in local media outlets such as justsaying.ASIA and CNA Lifestyle, and adapted into animated videos (ComicVid by VividThree Productions).
In 2022, KJ was invited as an ambassador artist for Singapore's inaugural Comic Embassy, an initiative co-organised by SG Cartoon Resource Hub and NAFA International. Later on, KJ had the privilege to adapt the autobiography of CPT Ho Weng Toh, Singapore's last World War II Flying Tiger, into a comic series published in the local newspaper.
On the global stage, KJ’s works have been featured in internationally published comic anthologies, including the Covid Chronicles by Graphic Mundi, which was named by The Washington Post as one of the "Best Graphic Novels of 2021". He was also announced as the interior comic artist for Týr, internationally renowned Faroese folk metal band, to be published in 2024.
Currently, he is focused on his latest project, Zhao, a wuxia graphic novel steeped in historical fiction.
