It’s finally here! Secret Asian Man goes into global syndication! If you’re wondering why this is such a big deal there are a few reasons:
It’s being distributed by United Feature Syndicate , the same company that markets and distributes “Peanuts”.
This is the first comic to EVER be nationally syndicated with an AA male character lead (or AA lead for that matter). So even if Hollywood says no, newspapers across the globe say YES, and that means that everyone who opens up a newspaper and turns to the comics section will being seeing Asian American faces.
It’s a kick ass comic strip!
Here’s an interview with Tak Toyoshima from the Nichi Bei Times on the strip and going into massive syndication.
