A Gateway to Underworld book

Ho Chi Minh City-based artist Can Tieu Hy won the silver prize for her Gateway to Underworld work, the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced in a press release on Tuesday.

The “Gateway to Underworld” tells the story of a girl who is suddenly taken to the underworld and embarks on a search for the reason behind her death, and a way back to life.

Throughout her journey, she learns about life values and the importance of appreciating the relationships and bonds she had in the land of the living.

The annual awarding program was established by Japan’s Foreign Ministry in 2007 to honor artists who have contributed to promoting Japan’s comic culture overseas.
