The Chop-Chop Hits Keep Coming
I know I'm running the risk of turning the 100-Page Super Spectacular into the Chop-Chop blog (and that would be wrong for a variety of obvious reasons), but the Chop-Chop posts have generated thousands of hits, and several other prominent blogs have linked to these pages.
One of those links happens to come from the blog of Gene Luen Yang, creator of the graphic novel American Born Chinese, who writes in the post, "Chop Chop is an ancestor to my character Cousin Chin-kee."
This is particularly cool because the paper I've been working on is about how contemporary cartoonists use racial caricatures from the past, and American Born Chinese is a prominent work in that research.
