13-Dot Comic

13-Dot comic became very popular, especially with female readers in 1960-70s Hong Kong as the fashion depicted within its pages were always of the latest trend. In one story the main character can change her outfit several dozen times leading to many tailors displaying the comics as blueprints for dress patterns. The fashionable and at times frivolous imagery about a teenage millionaire’s daughter gave a newly emerging group of young women workers and students a confident feminine heroine and model of modern womanhood. It is now considered a Hong Kong “cartoon classic” and has made Lee Wai-Chun one of the few well-established female manga artists.
