8 Asians

When I was growing up, I always wondered where the Asian American superheroes were. I wasn’t a comic book junkie, but I was a fan of Saturday morning cartoons, Sunday comics, and the occasional comic book. In college I discovered and fell in love with the Watchmen comic book series and later discovered X-Men. But even then I didn’t find the Asian superhero I was looking for. So, it was a delight to read about the upcoming Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology.

The anthology includes contributions from Greg Pak, Bernard Chang, Gene Yang and Christine Norrie. Greg Pak is no stranger to Marvel Comics having worked on previous titles including Ironman and The Incredible Hulk. Bernard Chang has also worked on titles such as X-Men and Wonder Woman. Gene Yang previously published a graphic novel titled American Born Chinese. Christine Norrie is the creator of the graphic novel Cheat.

Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology is scheduled to release on April 15th. I fully expect to have my copy in hand soon after. Now if I only had some superhero power to go with it.
