The visuals for interiors were always a little trickier to find then exteriors – most photographs from back in the day focus on shots of buildings rather than the rooms inside. Fortunate circumstances did lead to a good source though – I’d been in NYC for the comic con back in 2011, and took a trip to the Museum of the Chinese in America (http://www.mocanyc.org/), where Gene had artwork up as part of an exhibition of Chinese-American cartoonists (GB Tran was part of it too!)

Elsewhere in the exhibition there were a set of  photogrpahs of Chinatown interiors by a photographer called Robert Glick

When I got back to Singapore, I looked him up on the interweb and found some really great photos:

They were taken in the 1980s, but that’s part of the appeal of the photos I guess – there’s a sense of time standing still, even if only for a little while.

Anyway, some reviews for Shadow Hero #3 below, thanks for all the kind words, all! :)
