Gene Yang at Escapist 

Seminal comic book author to talk on how to break into the industry.

Oakland native Gene Yang was recently named the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature by the Library of Congress. The honor is deserved. His most famous graphic novel is American Born Chinese, a profound yet accessible meditation on the experience of being Asian American that ends in a revelatory plot twist. His other books include Avatar Last Airbender, Level Up, Boxers and Saints, The Shadow Hero, and most recently, Secret Coders. He also currently writes Superman for Marvel Comics. You may or may not have heard of that one. Yang will be at Escapist Comics (3090 Claremont Ave., Berkeley) on January 30 at 2 p.m. to sign books, talk about his work, and give a talk on how to break into the comic industry. For anyone interested in a graphic novel career, or is just a fan of Yang, this event will be a treat.
