Asian Americans can be heroes, too

This Wall Street Journal video, free to embed on your blog if you have one, gives Asian American creators, fans and readers of alternative graphic fiction the media coverage it deserves.

Held last July 11 at the Museum of Chinese in America in New York City, the event provided a venue for one-of-a-kind gathering of Asian Americans, incorporating education, dialogue, spontaneous creativity, inter-generational outreach and the chance for established and emerging talent to show off their work.

Featured guests included Bernard Chang, Fred Chao, Cliff Chiang, Sean Chen, Derek Kirk Kim, Greg Pak, and Christine Norrie. Three workshop tracks covered Reading Comics, Making Comics, and Creator Spotlight, and a Special Achievement Award presented to Larry Hama.
