Arigato Macaroni

In terms of drawing quality, i think this is the best Indonesian i read so far.

Arigatou Macaroni is a webcomic created by Erfan Fajar from Stellar Labs. It has two main story arcs, the first one is about two little kids from a comic writer parents  : Osei & Yuki and the other one is daily live & love struggle of Rambo, quarter life crisis studio based comic writer. In between these two , theres a lot of one off filler episodes which usually Erfan’s hilariously absurd point of view about a phenomenon or a trend in Jakarta. This format and the style of humor is quite similar to Kar Kerschl’s Abominable Charles Christopher.

Its funny with a little bit of aaw which can makes you warm inside. Let me repeat again, the drawing quality is the best among Indonesian comic ive ever read so far. One that come close is now discontinued Lima Menit Sebelum Tayang which i just realized came from the same kitchen (Stellar Labs, get your act together and revive Makko!). A really really must read.

Its available on physical format as well. I grabbed one in PopCon and it was 100k well spent. Check out their facebook or mention @erufan on twitter to order Arigato Macaroni deluxe comic edition online.
