Today is your last chance for free admission to the Museum of Chinese in America in time to see these two comics-themed exhibits before they close on Sunday. I blogged about them a bit ago, and I enjoyed them, so I recommend it. MOCA is free today from 11 am to 9 pm which is nice (and I think different from when I last went?), so check it out!

One of the exciting pieces included in the exhibit is a set of in-process pages from Gene Luen Yang‘s forthcoming Boxers & Saints, coming from First Second this September. Yang scored a huge success with his 2006 comic American Born Chinese, and Boxers & Saints sounds equally ambitious. Yang granted an exclusive interview to Wired about the book (or actually, set of two related books released in a slip cased edition), and it’s sounding very interesting.
EDIT: Forgot the link to that exclusive interview I mentioned : P rookie mistake…
