secret-identities

  • Geez, I  meant to answer this one separately since it’s going to be long, but when I was scanning through I only saw the bit about Bellatrix and I included it on this list and deleted the original.  I’ll make a text post answering this right now.  EDIT: Here is your answer.
  • If you’ve never seen it:  Go, go, go!  If you have: What are you wasting time talking to me for?  Go rewatch!
  • You caught me, I was the fifth Gryffindor male in the class of ‘78.  I recorded everything they said long ago and have decided to chronicle their legacy here.
  • Raylee, how dare you use my name.  You are this close to giving away my secret identity.  Soon people will be banging on my window at night and demanding quotes for their favs.  (And of course, love, the next quote’s for you.)  EDIT: I think you’ll like this.
  • Thanks so much!
  • Thank you!  I’m glad you like it!

“What if we told you a tale about a quiet, unassuming guy with black hair and thick glasses? He’s an immigrant, who’s done his best to fit in to a world that isn’t his—one very different from the land of his birth. He’s got a hidden side to himself that he can’t quite bring himself to show, not even to the popular girl he’s got a huge crush on. If only she knew who he really was—what he could really do—she’d be amazed, he thinks. If only she knew. If only everyone knew…

 For many Asian Americans, this chronicle is a familiar one, because many of us lived it. But this also happens to be the story of a mild-mannered reporter named Clark Kent, better known to the world by his alter ego: Superman. And it’s just one example of the parallels between the cultural narrative of Asian America and the mythic foundation of the comic book superhero.”          - Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology

Day 5: Favorite Dialogue -> Identity

“I quit!”

“No you don’t.”

“Yes, I do. Not my old job in the IT-department, but my new job as you executive assistent, which you think, I’m going to accept. You’re thinking could not be more wrong in this matter.”

“I need a girl Wednesday!”

“It’s…Friday and the answer is no!”

“These computers have been upgraded. Far more processing power than your typical secretary.”

“Did you know I went to MIT? Guess what I majored in, hint, not the secreterial art!”

“Felicity! We all need to have secret identities now. If I’m going to be Oliver Queen, CEO, then I can’t very well travel down 18 floors, every time you and I need to discuss how we spend our nights.”

“And I love spending the night with you…..3….2….1. I worked very hard to get where I am and it wasn’t so I could fetch you coffee.”

“Well, It could be worse, my secret identity is his black driver.”

“Right now, I need you to figure out how the hijackers are getting a line on the goods earmarked for Glades Memorial. If we know how they pick their targets..”

“We’ll know when and where to stop them.”

“Fine”

“Oh! May I get you a cup of coffee?”

“You’re not actually offering to get me a cup of coffee, are you?”

“Nope. That won’t be happening. Ever!”

YOU SHOULD ALL GO BUY THIS AND READ IT!

Writers BRIAN JOINES and JAY FAERBER and the stunning art team of ILIAS KYRIAZIS and CHARLIE KIRCHOFF bring you classic super-team action and intrigue for the 21st century.

The Front Line are a supergroup who fight bad people and stuff. They invite a new member in but it turns out he’s a mole and is spying on them (that’s not a spoiler btw.. it’s the plot). He’s there to find out their secrets.. and they have a lot. There’s a few revealed in the first issue that make you go ‘niiiiice' 

I will definitely be picking up #2

I give this first issue a solid 8 out of 10

Give it a whirl

Don’t wanna take my word for it?

This is the first time that Tim and Bart meet.  Tim basically takes his class on a ski trip (it’s good to be rich) where Bart also happens to be.  They meet as Tim and Bart, and then again as Robin and Impulse.  Tim immediately figures out his secret identity, even though Bart tries to convince him otherwise.  They work well together, but even now Tim is setting himself up as the “grown-up” in their relationship.  It’s a really fun issue that I’d recommend.

hi friends! I hope all my fellow NYCers survived the hurricane safe and sound. my area of BK was thankfully untouched; I am so freaking grateful to have had power through this whole ordeal. 

so the official launch date of Secret Identities is rapidly coming upon us (remember, remember, the 5th of November, woooo!) although you can still pick up an early copy if you’re in the NYC area and get to visit the Museum of Chinese in America, which I highly suggest doing. Right now through February they have an amazing API comics exhibit up featuring work by fine folks like my dear friend Alice Meichi Li and people I have had the great pleasure and privilege of paneling with, like Larry Hama and GB Tran, all of whom also contributed to SI! 

I was approached by Keith at the beginning of the summer and asked to contribute to the book. I almost could not believe that I was going to be in a real published anthology and consequently sat on the news for months, although I was dying to tell everyone (and now all of you have to get flooded with news about this, muwahaha). but I cannot even begin to describe how huge of an honor this is for me. 

I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. actually, when I started at NYU I’d started out in the psychology program with the goal of becoming a therapist (L O L HOW MINDS CHANGE) and then realized it was really not for me. but by then it was too late to change majors since I’d dived right in, so I just rode out the program, which I finished early, and turned my goal elsewhere, and in my sophomore year of college really got into drawing comics. I started Angry Girl in a very transitional and turbulent summer between my junior year and the start of my last semester and it has taken me further than I ever could have imagined. 

for the anthology I drew a two-page thank-you comic for Dr. Jan and Marica Vilcek, founders of the Vilcek Foundation, an organization that gives grants to immigrants working in the arts and sciences. The Vilceks themselves are immigrants, having left Czechoslovakia for the States in the sixties and becoming superstars in their respective fields of medical research and art history. The comic was written by Jeff Yang, one of our editors for the anthology. 

with that, here are the two pages I’ve done, as well as some preliminary sketches! (edit: okay Tumblr is being stupid, no preliminary sketches. BUT FINISHED ART YAY) They’re lettered in the anthology, but not by myself!

I am insanely pleased and proud to be able to contribute to SI and to be a part of this continually expanding API American comics community. Big thanks to Jeff, Keith, Parry, and everyone else who made publication possible! 

Here are some other fine folks who were included in Shattered and wrote about it:
