Happy Book Birthday to Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew’s The Shadow Hero: True Colors (e-issue #5), which comes out today!
“I think that one of the best things that book publishing can do is to publish books that address serious issues — I love the fact that books are one of the things that make people seriously consider new, different, and important ideas. But people often forget that books that address serious issues don’t have to be weighty, solemn, intimidating tomes that could double as a murder weapon. With The Shadow Hero, Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew create a discussion about identity, racism, and immigration that’s serious and important — but so filled with adventure and humor that you come to understand the important issues without being bludgeoned by them,” says :01 Associate Marketing & Publicity Manager Gina Gagliano.
