Secret Asian Man - The Daily Days
By Tak Toyoshima
After ten years of writing and illustrating the critically acclaimed comic strip series Secret Asian Man, Tak Toyoshima has put together his first book of strips of every single daily comic strip he produced for over two years of syndication with United Features.
Secret Asian Man is a comic strip that focuses on what makes us the same as well as different, through the lens of Asian American protagonist Osamu "SAM" Takahashi. No one is safe from SAM's keen observations on race, religion, politics, sexual orientation and everything else that gets people's undies in a bunch. Since 1999, Toyoshima has been bringing SAM's adventures to newspapers across the country. He has been invited to speak to students about SAM at top universities. Toyoshima was also recently honored by the National Japanese Historical Society in San Francisco. Paper: 232 pp.
