In recent years, Beijing-based cartoonist fenta has been working on a series of comics about a talking bat, Afu, and his companion, Ada. The series has always been focused on vignettes about life in contemporary China, so it was natural for him to make work depicting changes during this unprecedented moment. He said he wanted to recognize the work of those who were keeping the city running throughout the crisis, performing their duties with with care and diligence.
