In 2009, the first Asian American Comic Con was held in New York.
Eight years, the second Asian American Comic Con is held in Los Angeles at the Tateuchi Democracy hall.
The one day summit featured back to back panels discussing topics of diversity and storytelling. There was even an artist alley featuring local artists and creators.
This video features a small highlight of that day.
