SEARCH FOR THE HOLY SEAL

2012 Golden Comic Award Best New Artist

Ah-Yan is an architectural conservation major. One day, his aunt, Mary finds an ancient looking stone seal. Just when she is showing off her find, a god named Jinwu suddenly appears and tries to take the seal, saying that it is the Holy Seal of the Heavenly Palace. At the same time, the Heavenly Palace, which has just discovered that the seal is missing, sends out their own special agents, ‘Far Sight’ and ‘Good Ear’, to spy out and retrieve the holy relic. In the confusion, Ah-Yan learns that the struggle for the holy seal is actually tangled up in a heavenly love affair…

YinYin cleverly uses a fantastic story about chasing after a holy seal to introduce the unique ornamentation of Taiwanese temples and the stories behind them. Additionally, she gives the heavenly realm a structure similar to modern government, dressing the gods of time immemorial in modern garb like regular people, the juxtaposition making for a pleasant surprise.
