Hard N.O.C. Life

May 25, 2020

On a special Asian Pacific American Heritage Month edition of Hard NOC Life, Dominic and Keith are joined by a trio of authors -- Gene Luen Yang, Sarah Kuhn, and Minh Lê -- who all have AAPI-themed graphic novels out now from DC Comics!

In just the last few months, DC Comics has published a series of middle-grade and YA-focused graphic novels that not only appeal to new comics readers, but also feature Asian American characters in the lead. Yang's Superman Smashes the Klan, Kuhn's Shadow of the Batgirl, and Minh Lê's Green Lantern: Legacy -- not to mention Melissa de la Cruz's Gotham High -- mark a dramatic turning point in AAPI representation in mainstream comics. And we are lucky to have three of these accomplished authors on the podcast to discuss their contributions to the cause and the canon.

After the conversation, Dom and Keith share their initial thoughts on the Snyder Cut announcement.
