Good fiction opens a window into truth. And really good fiction opens a window into truths you haven’t seen or thought of or understood before. This book is a new window on a rarely seen side of the American experience.Take a look through it. You’ll be surprised.

  1. Walter Simonson
    writer/artist, Manhunter, Thor, and Orion


Secret Identities has hit upon one of those truths that feels surprising only because no one thought of it sooner: that our culture's superhero template dovetails uncannily with Asian American issues and identity.

  1. David Henry Hwang
    playwright, M. Butterfly, Golden Child


These artists show how we can be funny and witty and profound all at once, turning stereotypes inside out and upside down to create new images that empower individuals to write the scripts of their own lives.A classic on the level of Maus and The Dark Knight Returns, this is a comic book every Asian American teenager needs to read, every Asian American adult should buy, and every person of any background will appreciate.

  1. Frank H. Wu
    author, Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White


This book will acquaint new audiences to the Asian American experience, and inspire younger generations to explore their own history, identity and culture.

The trope of the mask and disguise works well when representing Asian Americans… as does the notion that we can choose our own masks to wear and remove at will.

  1. Elaine H. Kim
    Professor of Asian American Studies, UC Berkeley


At long last, the Asian American superheroes I've always wanted. Make no mistake, these are geeky comic book stories. But they're OUR geeky comic book stories. And that makes all the difference.
