Gene tells Keith about the origins of the Super-Man from Shanghai, and how he originally wanted no part in creating the Chinese Superman. They also talk about Superman-as-Asian-American metaphor and the politics of modern China before extolling the virtues of chubby Chinese kids and previewing the next Secret Coders book for First Second and his work on a non-fiction graphic novel about basketball.
