The Shadow Hero by Gene Yang and Sonny Liew

 

green turtleSo I just read The Shadow Hero by Gene Yang and Sonny Liew for the second time now.  Honestly, its one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time.

In a nutshell, Gene and Sonny tell the story of the very first Asian American Superhero, The Green Turtle!  It was such a fun and rewarding read.

Gene and Sonny make light of many of the issues that surrounded a Golden Age hero of color.  And do it in a fun light hearted way that still teaches lessons.

I really can’t recommend this book enough.

So I had to throw together this quick sketch.  Wait’ll you see how Sonny draws him though.  Wow.

You can get it through amazon HERE.
