First Second’s Second Season

I am a slug, because I have yet to read any of the first set of First Second‘s graphic novels, and here they are putting out their second batch (due tomorrow).

They’re all well-reviewed and look great, but the standout seems to be Gene Yang‘s American Born Chinese. If you’re on the left coast, there’s even a launch event a week from tomorrow at the Isotope.

Check these books out — there’s plenty of preview material at the first link to show you more.

    American Born Chinese sounds interesting. Only book from them I’ve seen is Lost Colony, which just wasn’t for my tastes. Yet they are an impressive looking company.

    I’ve been waiting for Kampung Boy for months. And they’ve definately been operating like a company to look forward to–good, international list, coherent plan, timely and reasonably size releases…

    American Born Chinese has a great structure, and is well worth your time, but the ending left something to be desired.
