Toledo Comic Arts Festival is proud to present a special edition of the Library's Online Comic Book Group featuring special guest Pornsak Pichetshote, in partnership with Image Comics. We'll discuss The Good Asian: 1936 Deluxe Edition, the thought-provoking and artistically striking noir detective story set in 1936 San Francisco.
The Good Asian: 1936 Deluxe Edition collects the Eisner-award-winning hit in one complete volume alongside special bonus content. The Good Asian follows Edison Hark – a haunted, self-loathing Chinese-American detective on the trail of a killer in 1936 San Francisco – in a noir mystery exploring the first generation of Americans to come of age under an immigration ban: the Chinese, as they’re besieged by rampant murders, abusive police, and a world that seemingly never changes.
