Nicky Lee's Stories and their Heroines

by Pamela Twain on Feb 2, 2011

Nicky Lee is a penname of Li Chung Ping, a popular manhua creator (Taiwanese comics like Japanese manga). She focuses on teenage girls in her comedy, drama and romance mangas. She also founded fashion manhua in Taiwan and works as a leading artist at Taiwan's Tong Li Comics. Her fame comes mostly from Youth Gone Wild and The One. Her mangas published so far are: * Paradise City (1994) * Youth Gone Wild (1996) * Provence (2004) * The One (2005) Born in 1992, Lee started her activity by submitting a story, Paradise City, to Tong Li's manhua monthly, Flower Girl. It marked her long cooperation with Tong Li. Her 2nd work, Youth Gone Wild (5 years since 1996), became her longest and best. The magazine has published her 4 manhuas with one still in print. Nicky Lee's bio is mainly revealed by her notes in book margins and some interviews. Married, she has no kids and refers to her mother as her mentor. She adores the 1980s American heavy metal and pays tribute to Fuyumi Souryo (Mars) and Shimizu Reiko. Her 1st big work serialized in Flower Girl, a 4-volume Paradise City, sprang in 1992. This manga was also translated and published in Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, mainland China, North America and elsewhere. Its narration turns around a popular rock singer, J.B. Ike, who had to face his opponent Carl trying to overthrow Ike in pop music and figure out his feelings for actress Renee. Youth Gone Wild manga (1996) aka Rock Fever or Raging Tide has seen 14 volumes for 5 years. The manga often refers to music bands like Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, Garbage and Skid Row and describes a young rock band eager for stardom. Fired from a record label by her boss, a spoiled movie star, Yating joins a pub featuring a famous group, Gangster, with a divinely voiced singer. Luckily, her retiring uncle sets up his own record company inviting her to co-create a top rock band in Taiwan. Now Yating as a new manager starts her own business and music career. Nicky Lee's intention was to color some Youth Gone Wild and Paradise City pages categorizing the book into Rock&Roll Era and Fashion. But after consulting her editor, she concluded the number of pages and cost would be too great. So they added only the fashion section. A 2-volume Provence manga came out in 2004. Provence is a popular cafe by siblings, Hayes and Hayumi. Many girls come there to date Hayes. The 1st volume features Yune, a senior schooler illustrating kid books and loving Hayes. The intrigue is how she hides her feelings. The 2nd volume describes Alan with his undivided love for Hayumi and determination to win her over. The One manga saw light in 2005, so far in 9 volumes as Lee's 2nd biggest work after Youth Gone Wild. Like her other stories, it was published in Tong Li Comics and now is serialized in Star Girls Magazine. Its heroine, Cane Lele, was born in a fashion family of Taiwan's top models. After her parents tragically die in an airplane crash Lele begins hating the shallow fashion industry. Then she's adopted by her grandmother. Lele hardly comes of age when convinced by her aunt, model agent Ye Fei Hong, to model after seeing a photo session of American supermodel Angus Lanson. So she approaches modeling as an art form. Lanson visits a top fashion meeting by Ye Fei Hong's magazine editor. Invited to meet him, intrigued Lele confuses him with his twin elder brother, Eros Lanson. It paves the way for Lele's career - NYC fashion, a top model and even love.
