Favourite Cartoonist Lat

I love this man. I’ve been following & enjoying his cartoon characters since my early chilhood. Dato’ Mohd Nor bin Khalid or best known as Lat is Malaysian best cartoonist since 70s (as far as I’m concern) where he first started his ‘illustration’ on Malaysian life scenarios with ‘Tiga Sekawan’ and ‘Keluarga Si Mamat’ (He was thirteen then when his first comic was published by Berita Harian).

I’ve series of Kampung Lat collection and others such as Entahlah Mak …, It’s A Lat Lat Lat Lat World, Keluarga Si Mamat, Last as Usual, Lat at Large, Lat’s Lot, Lots More Lat, Town Boy, With a Little Bit of Lat, Be Serious Lat, Better Lat Than Never, Lat and Gang, Lat and His Lot Again, Lat Gets Lost, Lat was Here, Lat with a Punch, Mat Som, The Portable Lat & latest collection of ‘Lat 30 years later’ & 'Lat the Early Series'. The only book that I do not have (yet) in my private collection is the 2008 ‘Dr. Who? - Tribute to Dr M’.

Dato’ Mohd Nor has that talent to draw a pure, lively & realistic characters which portrays ‘good, bad and ugly’ side of scenarios irrespective whether it is a political scetch, social or even gag cartoon.

Kudos Dato’ and hope for more success.

I’ve posted some Lat’s copyrighted material as pics above to be shared by all. Hope Dato’ tak marah (I know he won’t). You may want to know him better from some of the following links:
