Imagine a dimension where in 1958 the whole world goes wonky and suddenly there is no electricity, no technology. But as a trade off, mankind is presented with divinity. Not for themselves, per se, but suddenly every human has a god that helps them in a variety of ways with a variety of abilities. Everyone gains a powerful companion. Well, almost everyone, as we see in Godshaper #1.

Superheroes can come from any cultural (or terrestrial) background. In fact, as Gene Luen Yang says, “Superheroes are about immigrants.” The Shadow Hero is the newest comic creation by Yang and illustrator, Sonny Liew and together they’ve created the first Chinese American superhero!
Hank Chu is a Chinese American teenager who lives in Chinatown in the 1930’s. Most of his time is spent working with his father in his parent’s grocery store — and he loves it. Although Hank has found his own happiness with this lifestyle, his mother does not feel the same way. With lofty dreams of America before she immigrated as a child, her ideas were shattered when she arrived and found it less desirable than expected. As she grew older, she chose to settle in terms of marriage, work, and leisure time.
