Picked up American Born Chinese by Gene Yang the other day. (link has many mini reviews)
Has a story that I can relate to when I was growing up.
There's also a daily comic by Derek Kim. Check it out here. Check out his illustrator journals.. I practically pee my pants reading his work.
I picked up creature box volume 2.
and Travis Charest sketchbook 2009 which you can also get at http://animationroadshow.blogspot.com
