Alt Azn Comix

So I went to this pair of exhibits at the Museum of Chinese in America with some comics friends recently, and I recommend it.

There are two shows, one on depictions of Asians in American postwar comics and one on contemporary Asian-American indie cartoonists.  I’d seen the first one before, and it’s okay, but I was disappointed in the lack of original art…   Luckily, the second show delivers on that end.  I also enjoyed seeing a historical lens being applied to the central group of friends and artists in the 1990s Bay Area, seeing how their network formed, expanded, and overlapped with other artists.

MOCA is free on Thursday evenings and also has its permanent exhibit on the history of Chinese immigrants to the US, for your non-comics-loving friends.  Directions & Hours here.  (Also, my friends said the bathrooms were really swanky, FYI…)
