History has always been one Adrian’s favorite subject and especially the history of the region, the country of his forefathers-Malaysia.

Tales From the Straits is a graphic series of short stories about life in the 14th century Malay Kingdoms which stretches from Southern Siam, the Malay Peninsula, and the islands of Indonesia. It was the height of the Malacca Empire and the golden age of maritime explorations and adventures.

Though it was the age of great heroes and powerful rulers, these stories are about the trials and tribulation of regular inhabitants that dared to live during an exciting period.
