Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

History. Cartoons. Asian American Studies. Originally published in Japanese in San Francisco in 1931, "The Four Immigrants Manga" is Henry Kiyama's visual chronicle of his immigrant experience in the United States. Drawn in a classic gag-strip comic-book style, this heartfelt tale — rediscovered, translated, and introduced by manga expert Frederick L. Schodt — is a fascinating, entertaining depiction of early Asian American struggles.

Synopsis:

A "documentary comic book" from 1931, depicting the true adventures of four young Japanese men in America.

Synopsis:

A fascinating story, an amazing historical document! From servants in fancy homes to workers in the fields, through earthquakes, riots, a World's Fair, war, and Prohibition--the true story of 4 young Japanese men who pursued their dreams in the rough and tumble of American history.
