Kang Jing (KJ) is a Graphic Novelist from Singapore and the founder of Chiral Comics. In 2019, KJ released his debut comic series, “The World My Arena”, through Kickstarter. The martial arts series has since been featured on local media (justsaying.ASIA, CNA Lifestyle) and adapted into animated videos (ComicVid by VividThree Productions). It has also led to a spin-off webcomic series, "Save me from Chloe".
In addition, KJ has also seen his works published in comic anthologies internationally, including the Covid Chronicles by Graphic Mundi, which was selected by The Washington Post as one of the "Best Graphic Novels of 2021".
In 2022, KJ was invited as an ambassador artist of the inaugural Comic Embassy in Singapore, co-organised by SG Cartoon Resource Hub and NAFA International. Later on, he had the privilege to adapt the autobiography of Singapore's last World War II Flying Tiger, CPT Ho Weng Toh, into a comic series published in the local newspaper.
