Though production for the Shang-Chi movie is currently shut down, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get your hands on the martial artist, as a new series is launching in June from Marvel Comics.
In this new series, Shang-Chi’s fight for justice will collide with his past. When the hero finds himself pulled back into the fold, no one will be ready for what will be unleashed. With a target on his back after the revitalization of his father’s secret society, the balance of power will shift in an epic tale of succession, family, and betrayal.
“The basic idea that his father is a supervillain is still there,” said series writer Gene Luen Yang in a press release from Marvel Comics. “Zheng Zhu has been around a very long time. He has other kids besides Shang-Chi, so we’re going to explore some of those sibling relationships.”
Joining Yang are artists Dike Ruan and Phillip Tan.
