An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

Johnny Hiro: Half Asian, All Hero

Johnny Hiro: Half Asian, All Hero - Fred Chao

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I read this. I liked the artwork style. It's pretty minimalist which was nice after some of the other books/comics/manga I read last month.

 

I wasn't a huge fan of the "cameos," and I think I might have liked them better if I were a New Yorker and/or got more of the references (just a guess). All of the characters have unshaded skin (so they're all white... literally the color of the paper pages). This led me to accidentally read at least one character as the wrong race. I thought he was Asian, but I'm pretty sure he was meant to be black.

 

I don't know. I didn't really love the story or characters, but I didn't dislike them either. I'm going to read the sequel and see how I feel about the books and characters after that. As of now I'm just feeling pretty eh.
