The Shadow Hero 3

Fathers and Sons

written by Gene Luen Yang; illustrated by Sonny Liew

First Second

The Shadow Hero is based on the adventures of the Green Turtle, who solved crimes and fought injustice just like any other comics hero of the 1940s. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity . . . The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero. 

 

Now, New York Times–bestselling author Gene Luen Yang has created a riveting, hilarious, and moving origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by the unmatched Sonny Liew, this gorgeous graphic novel about heroism and heritage is also a loving tribute to the long, rich tradition of American superhero comics.

The third issue of The Shadow Hero, "Fathers and Sons," spells disaster for our hero's family! Hank takes on the Tong of Sticks, an underground crime network, and brings a terrible tragedy on his family. But in doing so, he gains the one thing he needed most…a superpower!  

 

Watch for the complete The Shadow Hero graphic novel, available in print and collected ebook in July 2014!
