So 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.
