Was The Green Turtle The First Asian-American Superhero?

OUT TODAY: The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang & illustrated by Sonny Liew

It’s hard to live up to your mom’s expectations… especially when she expects you to be a superhero!

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 identity… 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! With artwork by Sonny Liew, this dazzling, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.
