CBR interviews Pak and Chow about “Secret Identities” and “The Citizen”

“Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology” hits stores today — and Comic Book Resources has interviewed co-editor Keith Chow and “The Citizen” writer Greg Pak about the book. Here’s Pak discussing “The Citizen,” his contribution to the anthology:

On the surface, it’s just a crazy buddy story with the president and a super soldier fighting Nazi gremlins. How much bigger and goofy comic book can you get? But on a deeper level, without even talking about it, it creates an image of an Asian American who is a symbol for America. That’s useful symbolically just because there has been a trend forever for Asians to be associated with aliens. Asians and Asian Americans have long been treated as foreigners.
