On this extra special issue Geeky Brummie is joined by Amy and Viv from besea.n, a grassroots movement ,created to shine a light on Britain’s East and South East Asians. We talk about the impact of East Asian and South East Asian under-representation and mis-characterisation in cinema and how it affects the wider cultural perception of how East and South East Asians are viewed in western society. We look at if films like Shang Chi are changing this narrative plus we review the film and postulate on what we’d like to see next.
We have three comics on the Pull List this week. There are a couple of great books On The Radar and in MEANWHILE… Howard Chaykin is back with more Hey Kids! Comics! and Shang-Chi finally gets a trailer.
