About the book
First published in 2014 and now translated into English by J. Casey Hammond, Indonesia 1998 is designed with two dimensions of history. Part of the book is a compilation of old cartoons drawn by Mice in 1998 that satirized the disorientation and unrest in Jakarta after the resignation of Suharto. Another part is an entirely new comic book in which Mice contextualizes his old cartoons by telling, from a present-day perspective, the story of events that compelled him to draw the original cartoons nearly 20 years ago.
