Matt Brady at Newsarama has interviewed writer Greg Pak about “The Citizen,” Pak’s contribution to “Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology.” Here’s an excerpt:
NRAMA: Speaking about the tone of the story – it seems like it could be straight-ahead super-hero adventure, but is there a hint of anything else in there?
GP: With a patriotic superhero and the President of the United States as your central characters, you’re in for a tasty, heaping portion of political subtext, supertext, and satire. On one level, the story gives us a chance to explore and challenge very different interpretations of what it means to be a patriot and a citizen. But we’re also having a lot of goofball fun with giant airships and Nazi gremlins and whatnot.
“The Citizen” was written by Pak with art by Bernard Chang. The full six page story will appear in “Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology,” which hits stores on April 15.
