Originally published in Japanese in San Francisco in 1931, The Four Immigrants Manga is Henry Kiyama's visual chronicle of his immigrant experiences in the United States. Drawn in classic gag-strip comic-book style, this heartfelt tale—rediscovered and translated by manga expert Frederik L. Schodt—is a fascinating, entertaining depiction of early Asian American struggles.
This book will have a theatrical release in summer 2017! It was in development for 18 months with a couple of staged readings, and now it's headed for a three-week run at Theatreworks in Mountain View, California.
"A work of brilliant scholarship and immense historical value." -Manga Max
