The Shadow Hero is based on golden-age comic series The Green Turtle, whose hero solved crimes and fought injustice just like any other comics hero. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity…The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero.

Now, exactly seventy years later, New York Times-bestselling author Gene Luen Yang has revived this nearly forgotten, pioneering character in a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the golden-age Green Turtle.

With artwork by the unmatched Sonny Liew, this hilarious and insightful graphic novel about heroism and heritage is also a loving tribute to the long, rich tradition of American superhero comics.

    The Shadow Hero by Chinese American writer Gene Luen Yang and Malaysian-born artist Sonny Liew revives an obscure Golden Age superhero called the Green Turtle, providing him with the origin story the short-lived original series never got around to. Why would Yang and Liew be interested in the Green Turtle, you ask? As it turns out, he was the first Asian American superhero.

    Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed, The Shadow Hero starts out as a simplistic, Golden Age-style origin story wi

    Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed, The Shadow Hero starts out as a simplistic, Golden Age-style origin story with a Chinese twist, but gradually evolves into something much more complex and unpredictable. The story turns out to be the perfect vehicle for the considerable talents of Yang and Liew, as it allows them to infuse a genre traditionally plagued by racial stereotypes with their rich first-hand knowledge of Chinese culture and of the immigrant experience. The results are authentic, thought-provoking, exciting, funny, and sweet – recommended to… well, just about anybody, I’d say!

    First Second Books

    marked it as first-second-publications

    We’re excited every time we get to publish a new book by Gene Luen Yang, and we’re super excited to be working on this book with him and the fabulously talented Sonny Liew, whose work we’ve admired for years and years!

    This book is also great because it’s doing something by just existing: taking a problematic situation from the past and finding a way to make it right today.

    Changing the world in action!

    Hank wants nothing more than to work in his family’s grocery store, but his mother has more ambitious plans. She wants him to embody the excitement of their new country.

    She wants him to become a superhero.

    The first graphic novel that I ever read was American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang himself. So, when I saw The Shadow Hero at my local library I had to pick it up. I really enjoyed American Born Chinese. The art, humor, and over all story was really unique so naturally I expected as much from The Shadow Hero. And boy did it live up to all of my expectations.

    The story was super entertaining. I am a huge super hero fan. Everything from DC to Marvel, if it has a superhero and a villain involved I will watch, read, listen, binge it. This graphic novel was just like an old school comic. It followed the young boy from a less than ideal upbringing decides to avenge his families honor route and it worked, just like every other superhero. It also helped that the main character was loyal to his family and everything he ever did was for his mothers happiness.

    All of the clichés were present.
    Superhero gets caught up in how beautiful the villains daughter is, instead of actually killing the villain.
    Superhero goes through training with a family friend that just so happens to be a master in [insert fighting style].
    Superhero’s family member dies, must be avenged.

    You know, all of the clichés.

    The art style was very minimal and bold. There are lots of strong lines and bright colors throughout the story. There are a couple of flashback scenes that are colored similar to sepia (dull browns and tans). Over all I really enjoyed the quirkiness of the art and how it complimented the story.

    All in all I really enjoyed this graphic novel. It was fast and really entertaining. The art was beautiful and evolved throughout the story. I will definitely pick up more of Gene Luen Yang’s work in the future.
