Featuring:

LARRY HAMA is a writer/cartoonist/illustrator who has worked in comics, television, and film. He is best known as the writer of Marvel's G.I. Joe comics in the 80s, and as the writer of Marvel's Wolverine in the 90s.

CHRISTINE NORRIE has worked extensively as an artist and comic illustrator since 2000 with no formal art training. Her most noted works include her original graphic novel Cheat, the Oni Press series Hopeless Savages, and the newly released graphic novel Breaking Up.

JANN JONES is an coordinating editor for DC Comics who has worked on adding three new titles: Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam, Tiny Titans, and Super Friends to the DC comics line.

JAE LEE first rose to prominence in the industry for his work on Marvel's Namor the Sub-Mariner, Inhumans (for which he won an Eisner Award), and The Sentry, as well as his creator-owned character Hellshock at Image Comics. Lee is currently working on The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born.

GENE YANG's graphic novel American Born Chinese was named a 2006 finalist for the National Book Award in the young people's literature category. This was the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award.

I don't think the museum's posted information about this on their website yet, but I'm sure they will soon. Larry Hama, in case you don't know, is the guy who invented Storm Shadow! $3-$5 to meet the guy who invented Storm Shadow! How can you pass that up?!

Tezuka Exhibit 
If I'd had this blog up a week ago, I would've announced my stint as Cartoonist-in-Residence at the Asian Art Museum in SF last Saturday. They have an AMAZING exhibit featuring the works of Osamu Tezuka, the god of manga. If you're in the area, you have to go check it out. It ends Sept 5, so hurry!

More details here.

September Events 
I've got a busy September coming up. Here are two of the big events:

On Sept 15 at 7pm, I'll be on a panel with Larry Hama, Christine Norrie, Jann Jones, and Jae Lee at the Museum of Chinese in the Americas in New York. The topic of the night will be Asian Americans in Comics. This is especially awesome for me because I grew up reading Larry Hama and Jae Lee's comics... I might have to dig up some of my old G.I.Joes to bring with me. Please come if you can! More info on the museum is here.

On the weekend of the 29th, I'll be at the National Book Festival with my publisher First Second. On Saturday, I'll be doing a presentation at 2:55 and a signing at 4:00. Again, please come if you can! It'd be great to see you.

I finally put up a blog! 
I am absolutely horrible at updating my website. "It takes forever to do it with Dreamweaver," I'd always say to myself. "And I have grading or comics or dishes to do. If only I had an easy-to-update blog."

Well, now I finally do. We'll see if it was the cumbersome technology or my own laziness that prevented me from updating more often.
