Popular Culture—Comic Books
In the 1950s and 1960s, comic book-stalls in Hong Kong were
virtually everywhere, and youngsters needed to pay only 10 cents
to read 10 of their favourites. To increase business, most street
barber-stalls bought many comics for young customers to read.
The most popular were the Miss Thirteen and Old Master Q series.
From the intellectual’s view, the cultural identity of the time was
best illustrated by literary magazines and student journals such as
New Currents and College Life.
