"though our yesterdays may be different, we all share the same tomorrow." -- Gene Luen Yang

Gene Luen Yang has written a graphic novel retelling the story of a popular 16-episode Superman radio show from the 1940s, where Superman battled the Klan, which was terrorizing Chinese families in California. This is the story of the Lee family, who have moved to Metropolis from Chinatown, where they have trouble fitting in. Tommy makes friends because he can play baseball, but the pitcher he replaced is vengeful and joins his crazy uncle in burning a cross in the Lees' yard. Dr. Lee is struggling to fit in the hospital, where evil hides. Young Roberta is a true loner, but really the star of the show, with brains and resolve, but easy to overlook. Even Superman is struggling to fit in, trying to be true to his birth parents from Krypton and his foster parents from Earth, by not realizing his potential. While the themes of battling racism and hatred are important, especially now, I was underwhelmed by the art and dialogue, both of which I found to be unnecessarily childish. ( )

Superman Smashes the Klan was a great read. It has an old-school feel to it, while bringing an interesting perspective to the character through his relationships with others and through the POV character, Roberta. I really enjoyed the way Roberta's struggles to feel at home in her new surroundings mirror Superman's fears of standing out too much. The plot was more meaningful and the stakes higher because Superman is holding back and a lot of it was coming from the Lees' points of view as targets of the racist Klan. The combination of the classic storyline and upbeat message mixed with the internal struggles and character growth was a nice combination. It's definitely worth checking out. Also, as always, the art by Gurihiru is excellent.

I'd definitely recommend this to Superman fans and fans of comics in general looking for a positive story. ( )

I had read other works by Yang and decided to borrow this on a whim. It was fitting that Yang would fit together the story of a Chinese family who is new to the area and the origin story of Superman. Oh, and the KKK plays a part too, if you didn't already know from the cover.

Overall I thought it was a sweet story (Roberta and Tommy learning what it's like to move to a place where they don't look like many of their fellow classmates or neighbors, another retelling of the Superman story, etc.). Unfortunately, a lot of these themes (racism, the KKK, fear of the unknown, etc.) remain highly topical and relevant and I thought it was nice to see a slightly different spin from the usual retelling of Superman (this time paralleling the telling of a fictional but perfectly plausible story of the Lee family).

Considering how many complain of a "political" agenda in comic books (um, Superman is a legitimate alien from another planet), I found this refreshing. Comics/graphic novels are not really my thing but this is certainly a retelling that many will enjoy.

This was a library borrow for me and that was best.

After a slow start this settles into a decent tale about Superman coming to terms with his alien origins while dealing with a racist group called Klan of the Fiery Kross, a stand-in for the Ku Klux Klan. For the younger readers to relate to, there is a young Chinese American girl who struggles to fit into her new neighborhood and school and whose family is targeted by the Klan.

The actual story is a bit generic on the surface, but I appreciated the themes of self-hatred, conformity, and acceptance that Yang threads into it.

And bonus day! Superman punches Nazis and Klansmen all under one cover!

Set in the 1946, this is a loose adaptation of the "Clan of the Fiery Cross" episodes from the classic Adventures of Superman radio serial. Background about that original story can be found in Superman versus the Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate. The two books together might make for an interesting gift set. ( )

So very timely! The title instantly caught my eye and I knew I had to read this. This was based on a 16 episode story ark from the forties that showcased Superman taking down the "Clan of the Fiery Cross" on the radio show. It was immensely popular at the time and is credited with stopping a third wave of KKK "power." The story is about a Chinese family who moves to Metropolis and are instantly targeted by the Klan and get a burning cross in their yard. The children are dejected but with the help of Lois Lane, some neighborhood kids, and Superman - they begin to feel their confidence return. Really well done and addresses lots of key racist ideologies. I really liked that at the end of the graphic novel there is a little essay with pictures talking about the origins of the comic and the history. Really well done! ( )
