Ever since I’m reading comic books as a kid, I never saw a strong superhero from Asian origin. Since I’m Indonesian myself (born and raised in The Netherlands though) I often think on how cool it would be, if I would make a superhero comic book starring a character with Asian roots. So that’s why I decided to create one myself. Although there aren’t any plans yet on making a comic book, I did let artist Rodrigo Stella, make a character design of my ideal Asian superhero. Meet Captain Garuda! Asia’s response to America’s Captain America and Iron Man. 🙂
