Reader's Diary #2278: Pornsak Pichetshote (writer), Alexandre Tefenkgi (artist): The Good Asian Volume One

The Good Asian by Pornsak Pichetshote and Alexandre Tefenkgi had a lot of great things going for it. A noir story about a Chinese American detective in San Francisco 1936? That's something you don't read everyday! The art was great; fittingly dark and gritty. The history of Chinese immigration and the racism they faced was well incorporated. 

Unfortunately, I found the mystery itself convoluted and slow. There was an important development in the case towards the end of the collection but not enough to entice me to seek out the 2nd volume.
