Eternal Smile Officially Released Today! 


Woohoo! This is the most visually stunning project I've ever been a part of, thanks to tremendous work by my co-conspirator Derek Kirk Kim. You can find it at your local comic book shop, your local bookstore, or Amazon.com!

And while you're there, check out Secret Identities, the Asian American superhero anthology. I've got a short story in there that I did with Sonny Liew.

ABC-inspired Projects 
Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at the Catholic Library Association conference in Anaheim, CA. There, I met Mr. Lopez, a technology teacher at St. Genevieve Elementary School in Panorama City. Mr. Lopez taught American Born Chinese to his 7th and 8th grade students, and he was kind enough to share with me some of their projects. They're amazing! Here are just a few:

The Eternal Smile 


My next big graphic novel project is The Eternal Smile, a collaboration with Derek Kirk Kim, an internationally celebrated cartoonist and one of my best friends. First Second Books will release it later this Spring... in May, I think. I'm not sure. I don't have a head for dates.

Eternal-Smile-related bits and pieces are slowing making their way onto the Internet. Our publisher has put up a preview. Booklist posted a review, as did The Daily Crosshatch. Newarama did an interview with the two of us, which turned into kind of a lovefest. A manly lovefest, but a lovefest nonetheless.

Secret Identities 


On Tax Day 2009, Secret Identities, the premiere Asian American superhero anthology, drops. Because, you know, Asians love taxes.

Just kidding.

It looks pretty cool, Asian American comics luminaries like Greg Pak, Cliff Chiang, and Kazu Kibuishi contributed work. Sonny Liew and I did a short story for it that's sort of a riff on that old Green Hornet TV show. Check it out.

The official website is here. They even made a video trailer for Sonny's and my story here.
