Please read my previous post to be caught up to speed.
The w0rldtr33.net ARG has basically been confirmed after James posted the link to the site on his Instagram story last week.
UPDATE: I'm either making some progress trying to solve this or I've gone totally insane lol. In the HTML source code, there is a comment tag that says harpsichord-strawberry-27m3.
After some googling, I found out that there is a band called "The Damned" and they have an album called "Strawberries" where the Harpsichord kicks in around the 27ish min mark. There is a song that is an interlude called "The Missing Link" that exclusively features the harpsichord around that point in the album. It seems like this would make sense as a password but I've tried many different variations and haven't been able to crack it.
Hopefully, this is a lead and not me going totally off the rails here. I'm happy to set up a discord server for anyone interested to contribute toward solving the password!
Can’t figure out the password!
This is a book that sounds like i would have no interest in it.
Guy loves girl, girl loves guy, society from each side hate the other side, blah blah blah.
But the art work looked cool, a lot of people recommend it so i said, “let me read this digitally right quick…”
I read issues 1-6 digitally…
And then ordered these books right away!
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story, no wait, A GREAT STORY! AN AMAZING STORY! A STORY THAT WILL HAVE YOUR HEART HURTING AS IF THESE CHARACTERS WERE YOUR BEST FRIEND!
I couldn’t believe how much i loved this story especially once i finished the 3rd boo.
i re-read what the story is about and all i could think is “i would like this kind of book? Doesn’t even sound like something i would like.”
Words are currently limiting my emotions for this book so I’ll summarize it here.
Story is beautiful/amazing. You have to read it.
Been catching up with some older Image books. Was enjoying Copperhead but then...it just stops at #19 with a "To Be Continued".
So, what happened?
Will there ever be a omnibus or complete collection of this character?
Here's my review of The Good Asian written by Pornsak Pichetshote and visually brought to life by Alexandre Tefenkgi:
Today, let's take a step back in time to 1930s Chinatown with a series that has a gripping narrative which discusses depths of systemic racism while staying true to the time-honored conventions of noir fiction.
The Gritty Details: The Good Asian's Narrative Journey
We meet Edison Hark, a Chinese-American detective embroiled in a mystery that sees him uncovering a bloody conspiracy in the heart of Chinatown. >!Our protagonist has been called in to find the family maid Ivy Chen, a missing person case that rapidly spirals into a terrifying murder spree. Edison finds himself faced with not only the escalating tensions and racial conflicts in Chinatown, but also the task of uncovering the truth about the hatchet man known as "Hui Long." The escalating racial conflicts only serve to make his task and journey more perilous.!<
Bringing New Light to Classic Noir & Historical Echoes:
This comic hits all the classic notes of a traditional noir tale - missing persons, brutal murders, and a troubled yet charismatic protagonist who's all about that introspective monologue life. Throw in the historical Chinese-American perspective, and you've got a crime drama that's equal parts riveting and illuminating. The Good Asian is not only a crime drama read but also a rich historical snapshot of a significant time in Chinese-American history. Filled with historical references, ranging from the Chinatown Telephone Exchange to the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, making its world feel deeply rooted and authentic. The level of detail in the research Pichetshote put into this work is evident, adding a layer of depth and context that pushes "The Good Asian" to stand out in a sea of noir tales.
Artistic Vision & Style:
Of course this wouldn't be the same without the artistry of Alexandre Tefenkgi. His illustrations wonderfully capture the noir atmosphere, setting the tone for the gritty narrative. The detailed environments transport you back to the 1930s, enhancing the historical authenticity of the narrative. His rendering of characters, their expressions, and the action scenes are all top-notch, elevating the story's emotional beats and tension. The color work further contributes to the atmosphere, with a muted palette that emphasizes the stark realities of the time period and the characters' plights:

The Final Word:
For fans of the noir genre, The Good Asian delivers on every front. Stylish artistry, complex characters, dabbled with mystery, and a historical depth that elevates it from your average comic book. All these elements combine to establish a fresh new take on the noir genre. With the story of Edison Hark far from over, I for one am intrigued to see what future mysteries await in subsequent issues.
Why You Should Read The Good Asian:
Overall: 9/10 - GOOD

If anyone has any knowledge on what is going on with this Millar series it would be greatly appreciated?
Was the series canceled or is it on an extended hiatus?
I know we got a reprint of volume 1, when it moved over to image but will we ever get the other books?
Do we have any updates on the sequel of Mirka Adolfo’s Mercy? I remember it was promised to be released a couple of years ago and suddenly no updates on it whatsoever.

I need more! This comic is amazing, but it's been so long since the first arc.
Got myself the 5 reckless books and this fancy DCBS variant of Seven to Eternity today!
Hey guys, this is a screenshot I took from YouTube, from the great people over at " Near Mint Condition". I need some help identifying who was the artist for the anti-spawn in this screenshot, and I thought who better to ask than the big brained redditors here. This art looks ridiculously awesome 👏
