    The Good Asian #6 seemingly enters its endgame, as Edison Hark tries to unravel a string of brutal murders that includes the death of his surrogate brother. Edison turns to the one person he can trust—his surrogate sister/ex-lover Victoria—and begins to piece together an interesting story. Edison is a great noir hero, and this series continues to explore the horrific bias and racism faced by Chinese immigrants while balancing a great mystery that’s intrinsically tied to that bias. This is a can’t miss series, one of the best published by Image today.

    The Story: Pichetshote effortless delivers a plot twisting chapter filled with mind blowing reveals and intriguing character development. I’m always interested in the way this series handles race relations and its conflicts. And I once again find myself impressed. The relationship between Victoria and Edison feels very honest and realistic. It is also in some respects infuriating. The two have fundamentally differing perspectives and Victoria’s judgements can be read as tone deaf. As for her role in the larger story, I’m excited to find out what is next to come. This is easily one of my favorite series of all time and I can’t wait for the next installment.

    The Art: The illustrations in this chapter feature a minimalist style and use a variety of cool tones that alter with the mood and location of the scene. A noir feel permeates throughout the issue and draws the reader further into the story.

    Pornsak Pichetshote continues to entertain with this hard-boiled detective story. He successfully tunes readers into what the Asian experience was like in 1936 America while simultaneously weaving a detective story that would rival just about any Humphrey Bogart or Jimmy Cagney film from that same era. I thought the conversations between Edison and Victoria really gave us a bit of insight into Edison’s cynical worldview and his resentment at having to go along to get along in order to just do his job and the self-loathing that brings him.

    Overall. A really strong issue that offers up a fantastic plot twist.

    The Good Asian #6 raises the stakes and the mystery to another level making for one of the more riveting entries in the series. It’s set up in a manner that immediately made me want to read the next issue. It’s going to be a long month.

    The Good Asian #6 is an excellent start to the back half of the series. All of the cogs are in motion and everything is moving impeccable. This is some of the finest storytelling you can find on the shelves, and the more embroiled in conflict that Edison Hark manages to find himself in, the more invested I become in this phenomenal story.
