Opening Reception for MOCA’s Marvels and Monsters and Alt.Comics Exhibits

 

Thanks to Angry Asian Man, from whom I unabashedly stole a high-res cropped version of the poster. Hope you don't mind, Phil!

Next Thursday, September 27 2012 6:00-8:00pm, the Museum of Chinese in America in NYC is hosting an opening reception for two exhibits focused on Asian Americans in comics. They write:

MOCA is pleased to present two connected exhibitions that trace the complex relationship between Asian Americans and comics: Marvels and Monsters examines the history of stereotypical and politically charged depictions of Asians and Asian Americans, while Alt.Comics presents contemporary Asian American artists using the medium to craft and present their own narratives.

This will be an awesome opportunity to get some advance tidbits on Shattered, the upcoming volume 2 of Secret Identities, which is featured in the Alt.comics exhibit.

… and yes, I might be going.
