Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints, American Born Chinese) appears at Eastwind Books on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 3:00 pm to present his latest graphic novel The Shadow Hero!
In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret . . . The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero.
The original Green Turtle comic only had a short run, but now Gene Luen Yang has revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero.
Hank just wants to enjoy his quiet life running the family grocery store with his father, but his mother wants him to become a superhero, and to clean up their Chinatown neighborhood! Can he find a way to live the life he wants and not disappoint his mother?
With artwork by Sonny Lieu, this dazzling, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.
