"I Want the Wide American Earth" Digital Comic

An illustrated adaptation of the Smithsonian APA exhibition

This is so cool. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center has teamed up with SIUniverse Media (the folks behind the Asian American comics anthologies Secret Identities and Shattered) to release a digital comic to celebrate the opening of the exhibition "I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story" at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

Featuring the work of contributors Jef Castro, Bernard Chang, Chris Danger, Keith Chow, Ming Doyle, Yasmin Liang, Jerry Ma, Krishna Sadasivam, and GB Tran, the comic is an illustrated adaptation of the exhibition, capturing key moments and movements from the Asian Pacific American experience.
