The DC Festival of Heroes anthology one-shot will feature creators tackling DC’s Asian characters for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

DC Comics is celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with the DC FESTIVAL OF HEROES: The Asian Superhero Celebration one-shot.

The anthology features stories from a roster of Asian and Asian-American creators, tackling DC’s Asian and Asian American characters. One story from Ram V (Future State: Justice League DarkSwamp Thing) will center on Catwoman’s protégé Shoes, while Mariko Tamaki (Detective Comics) writes a Cassandra Cain story. Rounding out the anthology is an original story by writer Gene Luen Yang (Superman Smashes the Klan) and artist Bernard Chang.

Minh Lê and Trung Le Nguyen will also contribute a story to the anthology, centered around Vietnamese American Tai Pham — the newest Green Lantern. Lê and artist Andie Tong co-created Pham for the Green Lantern: Legacy graphic novel.

DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee will provide the cover for DC FESTIVAL OF HEROES: The Asian Superhero Celebration #1. Pham and Cain appear on the cover, along with New Super-Man Kenan Kong and Ryan Choi — who currently holds the mantle of the Atom. The Outsiders’ sword-wielding Katana also features prominently on the cover with Red Arrow/Emiko Queen and the villain Cheshire.

DC FESTIVAL OF HEROES: The Asian Superhero Celebration #1 goes on sale on May 11 from DC.
