Abdul Fattah Ngah aka Fatah, the renowned cartoonist whose comics were featured in the once-popular Gila-Gila magazine, had the biography of A. Mahmud, his cartoon character launched on Saturday.

Due to his deteriorating health condition, his friends have helped him launch the biography, adding that Fatah, together with fellow cartoonists at Gila-Gila, helped establish “cartoonist” as a legitimate profession in the publishing industry.

The book celebrates the Terengganu native’s contributions to the local comic scene, and is designed as a record of his artwork.
