摘要 劉興欽是臺灣最知名的漫畫家,他所創作的阿三哥、大嬸婆、阿欽與機器人等漫畫明星,在今日仍為大眾所喜愛。劉興欽出生於新竹大山背,是一名成長於鄉野的客家人。他憑靠自身的機智與模仿能力,快速掌握現代漫畫的技巧,並以深具教育性及客家故事著稱。其漫畫創作主題,主要集中在三個方面:一是童年在大山背客家村成長的生活記事;二是客家人在城市求職謀生的動人故事;三是客家小英雄在不同時空展現智慧與勇氣的幻想故事。這些生動迷人的漫畫,雖然都是環繞著客家議題,但是卻是以流暢詼諧的畫筆完成。他的漫畫深受當時流行電影的影響,無論劇情還是人物,幾乎都與中影「健康寫實電影」類似,共同呈現1950及1960年代,臺灣大眾文化的主要特色。
Abstract Liu Hsing-chin is the most famous cartoonist in Taiwan. His characters such as Brother A-san, Big Auntie, A-Chin, and Robot remain popular today. He was born and grew up in the countryside of DaShanBei, a Hakka village in Hsinchu. He is a self-taught artist who gained modern comic skills through wit and imitation. He is well-known due to the educational value that his Hakka stories provide. The three main topics of his works are: life stories in DaShanBei, how hakka people earn a living in big cities, and various fantasies featuring Hakka heroes.
Liu's cartoons cover many Hakka issues; often they have been influenced by popular movies. His comic portrayals are not only a reflection of Taiwan's popular culture in the 1950's and 60's, but also reflect the healthy realism of films produced by the Central Pictures Corporation in plot and character.
