Culture Vultures: Marvels & Monsters

Asian Arts initiative

Marvels and Monsters: Unmasking Asian Images in U.S. Comics, 1942-1986 — The William F. Wu Collection at The NYU Fales Library & Special Collections. Over four decades that included some of the most turbulent times in our nation's history, science fiction author and cultural studies scholar William F. Wu painstakingly gathered an archive of comics distinguished not only by its size and reach, but by its scope: It is perhaps the world's only, and certainly the largest, collection of comic books featuring images of Asians and Asian Americans.  Marvels and Monsters draws from this important collection, recently donated with the help of The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University to the Fales Library & Special Collections.
