Empty Bamboo Girl: A Love Letter to My American Born Chinese Life by Lillian Lee

Empty Bamboo Girl is a comic strip published in the Sampan Newspaper every other Friday.

Empty Bamboo Girl is a comic strip about a family navigating the cultural differences of an American Born Chinese life between two parents and two adult children. It’s a celebration of love, food and culture.

It is written and drawn by Lillian Lee, an illustrator and graphic designer from Boston, MA.

New comics are published bi-weekly on Fridays and appear in the Sampan Newspaper, the only bilingual Chinese-English newspaper in New England.

In 2019, the comic branched off into apparel, stationary and artwork. So, pick up some merch and support the comic!
