njahs presents "the many faces of manga"

Tak Toyoshima, the man behind the hit comic strip Secret Asian Man (which celebrates its 10th anniversary this month!) tells me about a new exhibit at the National Japanese American Historic Society in San Francisco, The Many Faces of Manga: Cartoons, Animation and the Japanese American Experience, running now through June 30. It features reproductions and original art from:

Osamu Tezuka - Astro Boy
Adrian Tomine - Optic Nerve
Bob Kuwahara - Miki
Stan Sakai - Usagi Yojimbo
Tak Toyoshima - Secret Asian Man
Lela Lee - Angry Angry Little Girls
Deb Aoki - Honolulu Advertiser's "Bento Box"
Jon J Murakami - Honolulu Star Bulletin
Henry Kiyama - The Four Immigrants Manga
Willie Ito - Disney/Hanna-Barbera/Dell Comics

It sounds really cool. There's an opening reception on Saturday, January 24 at the National Japanese American Historical Societ at 1684 Post Street in San Francisco's Japantown. For more information, go to the NJAHS website here.
