I don’t really make a lot of noise about it since I’m trying to do this subtly, but one my missions in life is to raise the visibility of minorities in the media, especially Asian Americans. If you look closely at almost all my comic book work, you’ll find that they feature people of color as the lead characters. Contributing to the Gwan Anthology is an opportunity to further that mission.
Big thanks to Jerome Walford of Forward Comix for this great honor!
“The Gwan Anthology will be a collection of creator-owned short stories, centered around themes of foreign lands, the immigrant experience and cultural fusion.
The overall goal for this anthology will be to highlight and celebrate comic creators who produce work with a sense of the immigrant/expat perspective, expressing both the joys and challenges of such a journey. The anthology is open to any genre: sci-fi, fantasy or slice of life; open to both real and imagined experiences.”
I will be contributing two humor pieces. Asian Baby Smugglers and Race Encounters of the Third Kind. Here’s a nice little plug from the publisher.
“Ramon Gil will have two entries in the anthology. WARNING: To avoid bodily harm, please do not drink any fluids while reading any of Ramon’s stories.” – Jerome Walford.
