Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology

Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology is a comics anthology edited by Jeff Yang, Parry Shen, Keith Chow, and Jerry Ma that brings together leading Asian American creators in the comics industry—including Gene Yang (National Book Award finalist for American Born Chinese), Bernard Chang (Wonder Woman), Greg Pak (Hulk), and Christine Norrie (Black Canary Wedding Special)—to craft original graphical short stories set in a compelling "shadow history" of our country: from the building of the railroads to the Japanese American internment, the Vietnam airlift, the murder of Vincent Chin, and the incarceration of Wen Ho Lee.

In October 2010, the editors announced they had begun work on a second anthology entitled Secret Identities Volume 2: Shattered. Production on Volume 2 was due in part to a grant from the The Vilcek Foundation. Publication of Volume 2 is tentatively set for Fall 2012.
