Taking a break from fighting crime and saving the world, Kenan Kong, aka the new Super-Man, gets together with China’s Bat-Man (Wang Baixi) and Wonder-Woman (Peng Deilan) along with other Asian superheroes of the DC Universe for some delicious Chinese food!
Asian American artist Bernard Chang created the variant cover of New Super-Man #11 in celebration of May being Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, which in the comic book world means #asianheroesmonth !
Featured on the badass cover, the heroes are shown enjoying their dim sum, dumplings, stir-fried veggies, century eggs, and chicken feet!
The Chinese DC trinity strikes a pose with Flash (Avery Ho), Dr. Light (Kimiyo Hoshi), Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro), Judomaster (Sonia Sato), OMAC (Kevin Kho), Orphan (Cassandra Cain), I-Ching, Element Woman (Emily Sung), Batman of Japan (Jiro Osamu), August General in Iron, Grace Choi, Crazy Shy Lolita Canary, and the minuscule Atom (Ryan Choi) taking a photo of the group.
Although the lighthearted moment may not last long (Starro the Conqueror’s presence in the background certainly means trouble!), it is awesome to see a number of Asian comic book heroes together enjoying dim sum of all things.
New Super-Man #11, written by series creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Billy Tan and original cover by Philip Tan, will be on sale on May 10.
