Are you in L.A.? Headed there NOW to present MARVELS AND MONSTERS: UNBOUND tonight at the Japanese American National MuseuM!

MARVELS AND MONSTERS: UNBOUND is a showcase of amazing short works inspired by the Japanese American National Museum's opening of the exhibition I curated for NYU A/P/A Institute, Marvels & Monsters: Unmasking Asian Images in U.S. Comics, 1942-1986. The showcase features eight works by seven artists (Maritess Zurbano, queen of magic, is represented TWICE) and each piece is a punch in the gut to one of the eight ugly stereotypes that have shadowed Asian Americans since time immemorial: The Lotus Blossom, The Alien, The Brute, The Manipulator, The Brain, the Kamikaze, The Temptress and The Guru.Congratulations to the creators of our showcase:
