We would love to work with writers and illustrators, both new and experienced, to contribute to the growing Southeast Asian comics community. If you have a story to tell, we want to hear from you!

Behind the name

An encounter with the Difference Engine, a mechanical calculator, led Ada Lovelace down a path she would never look back from. She is now known as the world’s first programmer due to her work with Charles Babbage and the Analytical Engine. She defied 19th century conventions and continues to inspire innovators and creators today.

We want the comics we publish at Difference Engine to be a similar catalyst, to nudge readers to look at the world a bit differently. Who knows what they will see?
