The Shadow Hero - Book Trailer

In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. 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. The original Green Turtle comic only had a short run, but now Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero.
