American Born Chinese – Gene Luen Yang

Rarely have I read such an amazing comic only to watch it crash and burn as it concludes. Yang tells the story Jin Wang, a Chinese-American who just wants to fit in (three guesses how well that works out), a story that intersects with traditional myths of the Monkey King and a sitcom-esque tale of an all-American and his stereotyped Chinese cousin. Great art, beautiful colors, and, as stated, a terrific story line that unfortunately doesn’t have much of an ending.
