Master of Kung Fu
Marvel released another batch of cover images, creators and titles that are coming our way in the fall.
One of the artists we featured quite a bit back in the day when AAMotD was in its heyday was Francesco Francavilla. Since his early appearances on the site, he has gone on to cover major titles from Marvel, IDW Publishing, and more. Today, we look at Master of Kung Fu #1 from last week.

This week, our look at ’70s comics continues with Shang-Chi, Master of Kung-Fu. Shang-Chi is a Marvel Comics character, often called the “Master of Kung Fu”. He was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin. He has no special superpowers, but he exhibits extraordinary skills in the martial arts and is a master of Wushu (the actual Mandarin name for the various Chinese fighting arts) both empty handed and with weapons, including the staff, nunchaku and double-edged sword. The panel will be discussing Master of Kung-Fu issues #15 – 28. As always, the Major Spoilers Podcast is nothing
Or – “Games Of Deceit And Death…“ Ever since 1973, Shang-Chi, the son of Fu Manchu, has walked the roads of the Marvel Universe seeking balance and spiritual enrichment. Now that every single person in Manhattan has gained Spider-Man’s powerset, Shang’s search has been sidetracked a bit by a mystical menace that nobody else can perceive. Will his fists of fury be enough to track down the big boss behind this game of death, or has he forever lost the way of the dragon in the spider’s web?
