Feign's books have attracted me, because I teach Chinese and was looking for some smart and funny way to enhance classes. Unfortunately I find his drawings to be overfilled with very un insightful racial stereotypes or clishees and often enough it appears as if the cartoons were drawn and then some story was made up. I found this more offensive than funny, because it digs into the very old stereotypes on Chinese people. These things are different for everyone and I enjoy politically incorrect humor very much, so it wasn't that I was offended but that I felt intellectually insulted because Chinese people do more than just use their cell phones and east dogs. So I found this way too flat.
