Starting on September 2010, Duo Hippo Dinamis (DHD, or “The Dynamic Hippos” in English) is featured regularly in Venture Magazine as comic strips. Venture is a bimonthly travel magazine in English, distributed in Indonesia and soon in Asia Pacific.
Trinity, co-author of DHD is the Editor in Chief of Venture. She wanted DHD readers are able to read DHD more often since the pubishing of DHD book will take at least a year. Besides, it’s one step closer for DHD to go international in a way.
As for Venture, DHD is suitable to their target market and they want a fun travel magazine.
Author Erastiany, grahic illustrator Sheila Rooswitha, and publisher Roni Amdani are still the creators of DHD. It’s quite a challenge to create DHD in English with “international sense of humor” but we are glad that we have been getting positive feedbacks from the international readers.
Below is our first comic strip on Venture Sep/Oct 2011 issue:
– Of course the word “fucking” was finally cencored 🙂
