Old Master Q Original: First published in 1962, Old Master Q revolves around the misadventures of a middle-aged man whose traditional views on social life - he boasts of a dislike of long-haired youths, rock music and modern Western art in his early years - are reflected in his attire (bobbed hat, yellow tunic, flat-soled shoes). Films: There has been a steady stream of Q films since the 1960s. The most intriguing is probably Herman Yau Lai-to's Master Q 2001, which blends computer-generated characters into a live-action film starring Nicholas Tse Ting-fung and Cecilia Cheung Pak-chi. Feel 100% Original: Viewed then as Hong Kong's answer to the stream of Japanese romance-driven manga flooding the local scene, Lau Wan-kit's romance series - which began in 1992 - is driven by the relationships among a group of twentysomethings in Hong Kong. Films: Feel 100% (1996) provided director Joe Ma Wai-ho with his big break, and also established singer Sammi Cheng Sau-man as an actor after years working on television serials. Feel 100% Once More followed swiftly in the same year; the franchise was revived in 2001 and then 2003 with a new cast. Teddy Boy Original: Written by Ngau Lo (Bullish Man), the comic series was first published in 1992, and was seen as the first widely available publication to offer an explicit representation of the lives of Hong Kong's gangsters. Film: Based largely on the characters in the comics, the Young and Dangerous series is one of the most enduring franchises in the history of Hong Kong cinema: the first film - directed by Andrew Lau Wai-keung in 1996 - spawned five more films, two prequels, and three other movies revolving around the original series' minor characters. The career of Ekin Cheng Yee-kin (above), who played the main thug, took off as a result. Chinese Hero Original: The series which made Ma Wing-shing's name, Chinese Hero features the sword-wielding Wah Ying-hung, whose deeds against murderous Westerners at home forced him to flee to the US, where he becomes a martial-arts master who contends with the social disturbances and racial discrimination around him. Film: Made in rapid succession to The Storm Riders, A Man Called Hero features many of the earlier film's cast, the most prominent being Ekin Cheng's presence as Ying-hung. And just as he did for The Storm Riders, Danny Pang (who co-directed The Storm Warriors) received an award for his editing, this time at the Golden Horses. Oriental Heroes Original: First published in 1970, Wong Yuk-long's long-running comics revolve around three young, streetwise delinquents (the series began life as Little Rascals) who face off against villains using the martial arts skills they studied at an academy called Lung Fu Mun ('Dragon Tiger Gate'). Film: Dragon Tiger Gate was released in 2006, directed by Wilson Yip Wai-shun and starring Donnie Yen Ji-dan as Dragon (Wong Siu-lung) and Nicholas Tse Ting-fung as his younger brother Tiger (Siu-fu, the main character in the original comics). It was greeted with lukewarm reviews, with critics unimpressed with the film's overtly cartoonish feel.
