Shattered: Asian American Comics Anthology SC
Description: Three years after the publication of the groundbreaking Asian American comics anthology Secret Identities, the team returns with a new volume-bigger, bolder, and more breathtaking in scope. This new book expands its horizon to include edgier genres, from hard-boiled pulp to horror, adventure, fantasy, and science fiction. Using this darker range of hues, it seeks to subvert and shatter the hidebound stereotypes that have obscured the Asian image since the earliest days of immigration: the stoic brute, the prodigious brain, the exotic temptress, the inscrutable alien, the devious manipulator. Shattered's 35 stories incorporate thrills, chills, and delight while exposing the hidden issues and vital truths of the nation's fastest-growing and most dynamic community, and features a cover by DC Comics' superstar Cliff Chiang!
