John A. Lent

University Press of Mississippi

Myanmar’s comics history dates to the British colonial period (1912, in fact). Among the first Burmese cartoonists were Ba Gale and Ba Gyan in the 1910s-1930s. This chapter traces the history of Myanmar comics through three stages, pointing out problems caused by government interference, economics, lack of privately-owned media, and competition from new media. Some discussion is given to the prevalence of comics rental shops in Myanmar.
