Secret Asian Man Goes Wide
On July 16th, United Media (home to Peanuts and Garfield) will launch a new newspaper comic strip with the highly punny name Secret Asian Man.
The creation of Tak Toyoshima, the strip tells the story of Osamu Takahashi, a struggling comic strip artist with a wife and son. Osamu – also known as Sam – is a second generation Japanese American. Toyoshima is the art director of the Boston alternative newsweekly, The Weekly Dig, where the strip has been running for some time. Secret Asian Man already appears in a number of such alt-weeklies across the country; being picked up by the Snoopy Syndicate is quite an achievement for an alternative comic strip.
