Comics Workbook Magazine #6 will debut at Comic Arts Brooklyn, Saturday, November 8th.

This is a bit of a homecoming for us. CWM#1 debuted at CAB 2013 and we never could have predicted the quality and enthusiasm everyone’s brought to the magazine in its first year. (#1-5 are available at Copacetic Comics.)

This new issue features a conversation between Patrick Kyle and Jason Murphy, an interview with William Goldsmith by Jamie McMorrow, Sara Lautman's reviews of A Voice in the Hall by Sarah Schneider and Dragon’s Breath by MariNaomi, an interview with Ben Passmore by Sophie Lucido Johnson, an essay on the work of Klára Grančičová by Kimball Anderson, and an interview with Yumi Sakugawa by Whit Taylor. Cover by Jason Murphy.

Comics Workbook Magazine is edited by Andrew White and Zach Mason, and designed by Zach Mason.

This was made in response to an anon we recently got who asked,

(Image reads - anonymous asked wocinsolidarity: We all know Lucy Liu is an industry favorite but do you know of any other Eastern Asia (or Asia in general) woc actresses?)

So rather then do a laundry list, I thought it would be cool to compile a photoset of someof the Asian actresses currently on television shows that aren’t Lucy Liu (though we do love us some Joan Watson). I asked around, and made this list based on my own TV watching and suggestions from people I know. So A) I don’t actually know if all of these shows are good or not and B) if one of your faves is missing it wasn’t done maliciously. 

*Disclaimers: All images used were found on Google. We do not own or claim to own any of these photos. All information about ethnic identity was found from Wikipedia, so let us know if anything is incorrect! 

Also: Sorry for how bad the quality of the photoset is. 

Edit: also I’m so sorry I clearly can’t count, this is only 19! 

Ok Hollywood is not allowed to be on Bullshit no more!

No Good Deed opened at #1 grossing 25 million

The Equalizer is about to open at 30 Million

Black-ish opened with 11 Million views (thats more than Community, Modern Family, Mad Men, etc.)

Scandal been killing the rating game

How To Get Away with Murder opened with 14 Million views 

We already know the upcoming Dear White People and Annie about to kill the game.

Its now time for studios to put that money up for the blockbusters, Sci-fi, and Fantasy films with people other than White Folks. Goodbye Old Hollywood.
