20 Down, 32 To Go "The Eternal Smile" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Gene Luen Yang burst into the comics world with his National Book Award-winning 2006 graphic novel, American Born Chinese. The Eternal Smile is his much-anticipated followup, a collection of three graphic short stories.

The amazing thing about these stories is their variety. A medieval prince defeats his greatest rival in the first, a gold-hungry frog exploits his fellow amphibians in the second, and a Nigerian e-mail scam is at the center of the third. The illustrator, Derek Kirk Kim, draws every story in a different style as well. These stories range from outrageous to utterly believable, but always present a world where fantasy and reality collide, worlds Yang excels in creating.
