The Resident Tourist (2008-)

The Resident Tourist, started in 2008, is an ongoing series of autobiographic graphic novels by Troy Chin, which spans 5 volumes to date.

The series is available for free reading online at http://www.drearyweary.com and has also been published in print form.

The print publication started in 2008 when Troy shared a booth with Sonny Liew and Ken Foo at STGCC 2008 in Suntec. At that point, The Resident Tourist was available for online reading only. Troy's drawings caught the attention of Adrian Teo, who was inspired to become a first-time indie publisher. Adrian promptly had a discussion with Troy, and soon the first small print-run of Volume 1 was published under Adrian's company, Wayland Smith Projects. (In case you are wondering about the name, Wayland Smith is the name of a legendary swordsmith, and Adrian is in the business of fabricating metal and steel products.)
