The Master of Kung Fu is back with a new solo series! Shang-Chi is a new 5 issue series written by Gene Luen Yang and art by Dike Ruan. The first issue of Shang-Chi was about the House of the Deadly Staff has gone into hiding since the death of Shang-Chi’s father, Zheng Zhu. Now, with the new Supreme Commander, Sister Hammer, they’re done hiding and will be hunting down Shang-Chi for revenge. Will Shang-Chi be ready for Sister Hammer? Guess we’ll find out next issue.
As a fan of Marvel, one of the characters I was not familiar with was Shang-Chi. I didn’t feel lost when I was reading this issue because it gave some brief backstory of the history of Shang-Chi, and made me more curious about the character. The story was straight to the point, and the art was good. If you’re not familiar with Shang-Chi, then I recommend giving the first issue of Shang-Chi a read.
I’ll do a full review on the series when the other 4 issues are out.
