Tak Toyoshima’s Secret Asian Man comic strip is being picked up by United Features, which will distribute it to daily newspapers around the world.
Toyoshima says on his blog that “this year is going to be a year of challenges and changes. Thanks to all of you who have been supporting the strip for years and to those who criticize me, disagree with me and tell me Iâ€™m a moron.”
According to United Features, Secret Asian Man will be the first nationally syndicated comic strip featuring an Asian American main character. United Features will begin distributing it July 16 to newspapers and at www.comics.com.
Secret Asian Man has been weekly strip in Boston’s Weekly Dig and other publications (including Hyphen Issue 5).
I LMAO when I see Secret Agent Man, and hopefully, as United Features development editor Ted Rail says, “You don’t have to be Asian to love Secret Asian Man!”
