The Shadow Hero 2 Gene Luen Yang Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The Shadow Hero is based on the adventures of the Green Turtle, who solved crimes and fought injustice just like any other comics hero of the 1940s. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity . . . The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero.

Now, New York Times–bestselling author Gene Luen Yang has created a riveting, hilarious, and moving origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by the unmatched Sonny Liew, this gorgeous graphic novel about heroism and heritage is also a loving tribute to the long, rich tradition of American superhero comics.


The second issue of The Shadow Hero, "Dawn of a Golden Age," follows our hero, Hank, through his superhero training…and into his first fight! Can Hank prevail without actual superpowers? Who exactly is this lovely—and deadly—woman he tries to save from mysterious thugs?

Watch for the complete The Shadow Hero graphic novel, available in print and collected ebook in July 2014!
