  • 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 has revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero. Hank just wants to enjoy his quiet life running the family grocery store with his father, but his mother wants him to become a superhero, and to clean up their Chinatown neighbourhood! With artwork by Sonny Liew, this dazzling, funny comic’s adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.
