  1. Aren't Vic Lee ("Pardon My Planet") and Karen Moy (writer of "Mary Worth") also Asian-American?

  2. I do not know if Vic Lee is Asian American; the few articles I've read gave no indication of his ethnicity. If you have a source please identify it.

    Yes, Karen Moy is Asian American. A comprehensive list of Asian Americans doing comics would be a worthy project.
