    The Good Asian continues to present a wonderful Detective Noir story with some great plot twists. Pornsak Pichetshote gives us a truly complex character in Edison Hark. The panels set in the bar where Wilber tells Edison to sort of play along with things to earn the trust of an all-white police force are revealing of the time period. We get some wonderful shocks and twists in this book, which will only make the story more interesting as the plot moves forward. Read Full Review
