Comics Bulletin said “I very much enjoyed ‘ The Story of Lee.’ It took me to a place I’d never been before – not just Hong Kong, which Wilson and Kutsuwada bring vividly to life. But equally as interesting was the way that the creators explore the worlds of their interesting and complex characters. It’s the worlds of these characters that makes ‘The Story of Lee’ so memorable.” The world of today is so connected as young people are branching out and exploring the world, coming in contact with diverse cultures outside of their comfort zone. Watch how the relationship blossoms between Matt and Lee, from their first meeting to dealing with others’ perceptions of their cross-cultural courtship. Illustrated by Chie Kutsuwada.
THE STORY OF LEE, Vol .1
Sean Michael Wilson & Chie Kutsuwada
Lee, living in Hong Kong, meets Matt, a fine young Scot. Their relationship becomes stronger by the day, despite their deep cultural differences. But there is Lee’s Dad to contend with who views this affair very suspiciously. And there is another contender for Lee’s heart, a Chinese young man, whose jealousy takes on twinges of xenophobia. Will Lee and Matt’s relationship successfully cross the cultural divide and overcome the negative odds? Two worlds collide creating good sparks… and bad ones.
