Asian Angst Graphic Novel/Strips

Growing up in Long Beach, CA (at the time, home port to the U.S. Navy) I was met with a lot of bullying. Kids' dad's and uncles served during WWII, maybe even at Pearl Harbor. Being one of few Asian/Japanese American kids in the neighborhood, I got picked on. I truly hated "Pearl Harbor Day." I was called a "Jap" by a number of kids.
But such taunts didn't stop when I grew up—living in places like Chicago I was met with some bigoted remarks.
