American Born Chinese

American Born Chinese - Gene Luen Yang Gene Yang could well make me a comics reader (clearly, he did). I stumbled across this via this promotional web video and ended up picking up a copy. Yang's artwork is gorgeous, and his storyline is a complex, interwoven fable, a coming-of-age story with themes of self-acceptance and racism.
