My favourite sequence in Sonny Liew’s The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye. The portable cinema guy who used to play old films on the streets of Singapore for loose change who slowly disappeared as society developed. It’s beautiful and couldn’t be done in any medium other than comics.

Here's something pretty interesting. This is a Cuban Vz53. There's not much documentation about these other than a few pictures of Cuban troops wearing them. The only other example that I know of that's like mine is in the collection of Brendon Ellis. It's believed the the helmets with the badges are for parades and ceremonial occasions. Photos indicate that these have been in use as early as the 1960's and as recent as the ongoing crisis in Venezuela as shown in my reference photo of Cuban troops in Venezuela in 2019. These have been used alongside various Combloc helmets from the USSR, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia as well as what is suspected to be a Cuban copy of the Ssh68. Although it is unknown if they are manufactured in Cuba or refurbished Soviet helmets.
