Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology contains over 200 pages of stories about Asian superheroes in an attempt to remedy the lack of such characters in comics.

Unlike The Darker Mask, which was text, this book is comic stories. As with any anthology, the quality depends on the contributors, and the list is impressive.

You can keep up with preview videos (animated versions of some of the stories) and other promotion at the book’s blog, or read a preview PDF that explains the book’s purpose at the official website. It’s due out in April. The Diamond order code is JAN09 4645.
