Kam Raslan: Readings and Other Appearances

Kam and Dato' Hamid on the cover of Off The Edge

Dato' Hamid is on the cover of the August 2007 issue of Off the Edge, together with his creator, Kam Raslan, and two exclusive interviews, "The Joys of Datukhood" with Dato' Hamid, and "The Perils of Datukhood" with Kam Raslan. (A special edition that promises to be a collectors' edition soon. I had to go to 4 newsagents before finally finding a copy - Webperson)

This, however, is not the first cover for both creator and creation. They are veterans at being "cover men"!

Kam was on the cover of the 7 May 2007 issue of Options in The Edge before going on to share the cover of the 8 July 2007 issue of Starmag with Dato' Hamid.

Kam Raslan's Confessions of an Old Boy: The Dato' Hamid Adventures (ISBN 978 983 3445 00 4) was first serialized in Off the Edge magazine and is published by Marshall Cavendish Editions, an imprint of Marshall Cavendish International.
