Work-Life Balance: Malevolent Managers and Folkloric Freelancers
Written by Wayne Rée
Illustrated by Benjamin Chee
A refreshing take on Southeast Asian myths, set in a modern-day workplace, complete with soul-draining work and bosses from literal hell
When a malevolent multinational arrives on our shores, familiar creatures like pontianaks, manananggals, raksasis, and ba jiao guis are forced out of their jobs. Some give in and sign up for mundane corporate life – but others would rather fight than join the broken-spirited hordes of the (desk)bound.
Benjamin Chee’s comics and Wayne Rée’s prose intertwine in this collection to bring you familiar Asian mythology in an even more familiar setting: the realm of dead-end work, glass ceilings and truly hellish bosses.
