Telling Asian American Stories in Comics

Hey East Coasters! I know all the cool kids are going to be in San Diego this weekend, but if you couldn’t make the cross-country trip, folks in the DMV can get their comics fix by coming to the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association in Washington, DC’s Chinatown this Sunday, July 27.

I’ll be joined by illustrator Jamie Noguchi (Yellow Peril) and NPR Code Switch’s Kat Chow to talk about the secret origins of Secret Identities and Shattered as well as Jamie’s Yellow Peril webcomic. We’ll also discuss why we have chosen the comics medium to tell Asian American stories in the first place. Check out details after the jump!

EXCLUSIVE: Strength in NUMBERS Featuring ANN ONE by Jamie Noguchi

On Tuesday, we dropped the first three “variant” album covers for Chops’ latest project Strength in NUMBERS. And Wednesday saw the release of the video for “Keep On,” the lead single from the album and also the long anticipated, fifteen-years-in-the-making return of Chops, Peril-L, and Styles Infinite, a.k.a. the legendary Mountain Brothers.

In the video, you might have noticed a “sis” joining the Bros on the track. That would be the one and only Ann One singing the hook.

You may recall that Chops and I worked with a dozen and a half artists to create individual album covers for each of the emcees, singers, and DJs on the album. And starting with Jamie Noguchi‘s take on Ann One below, the rest of the digital album covers will be available here at The Nerds of Color exclusively.

After the jump, you will be able to download a high-resolution jpeg of the latest Strength in NUMBERS “variant” album cover. Just right-click on the image and save.
