SF Chronicle Voting on Secret Asian Man

"Your vote on comics will count"

An exercise in democracy is underway at the San Francisco Chronicle, where the paper is asking its readers which of a series of new comic strips it's been testing out this week should be picked, and which ones should be "dumped".

It's a sign of the times, maybe, when a little-strip-that-could such as our own Secret Asian Man by Tak Toyoshima could conceivably oust old stalwarts like "Blondie," "Dennis the Menace," or even -- gasp -- Classic Peanuts!

But then, where does the country's most-beloved and first nationally syndicated Asian American cartoon star belong, if not in the major daily of America's most-Asian city?

Show SAM some love by voting for him in the Chronicle!
