Local comic book retailer Bernard Ang has appeared in the second issue of the new Earth 2 series by DC Comics.
In Earth 2, which features an alternative DC universe, the Green Lantern is gay and his chauffeur is modelled after the Singaporean.
Mr Ang, the owner of GnB Comics, had invited Earth 2 illustrator Nicola Scott for a meet-and-greet session at The Cathay on May 5, in conjunction with Free Comic Book Day.
Miss Scott said she drew him because the character's name was Bernard.
Said Mr Ang, 31: "I think it is cool to the max."
