We’ve covered the Bruce Lee comic series from Darby Pop Publishing in the past, and this week, Bruce Lee: The Walk of the Dragon, a new one-shot, lands at your local comic shop. The issue is written by Nicole Dubuc, with art by Brandon McKinney.
Philosopher/teacher/real-life superhero Bruce Lee is back. And, let’s be honest, the world needs him now more than ever. Taking a brief respite from battling an otherworldly evil, Bruce attempts to navigate modern-day Southern California despite still suffering from amnesia and having been “out of the loop” for over 45 years. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a simple “lunch run” soon turns into a comedy of errors involving mistaken identity, a Film Festival, and the pokey. And despite never being one to initiate fisticuffs, Bruce continues to find it difficult to both hide his martial arts skills… and keep his shirt on.
“My father and the way he lived his life have been a daily inspiration for me, and I’ve dedicated a big part of my life to finding ways to keep his message alive in the world,” said Lee. ” I hope you enjoy our book and develop your own passion for Bruce Lee and his phenomenal legacy of courageous action!”
We’ve reviewed previous Bruce Lee Comics, and Wayne Hall interviewed Shannon Lee and Jeff Kline, founder of Darby Pop Publishing on the Wayne’s Comics podcast, so if you are looking for something different, Bruce Lee: The Walk of the Dragon is worth checking out this week.
