Your First Look Inside Gene Luen Yang and Dike Ruan's 'Shang-Chi' #1
It's Shang-Chi vs. the Marvel Universe in a brand-new ongoing series kicking off this May!
The Shang-Chi mythos was transformed in last year's critically-acclaimed series by Gene Luen Yang, Dike Ruan, and Philip Tan — this May, Gene Luen Yang and Dike Ruan return with a new ongoing series for Marvel's greatest fighter as he finds himself on the opposite side of Marvel's heroes in SHANG-CHI #1!
Make sure your local comic shop snags you a copy on May 19 — to get you pumped, take a sneak peek at the interiors of SHANG-CHI #1 below from artist Dike Ruan with colors by Tríona Farrell.
After the events of his latest series, Shang-Chi has finally taken his place as the leader of the Five Weapons Society but using an evil secret organization as a force for good won’t be easy. And it’s about to get a lot harder when Shang-Chi’s fellow super heroes from Spider-Man to the X-Men to the Avengers, start to question his motives!
“I'm very, very thankful for all the support that we got for the SHANG-CHI miniseries. I mean, the first two issues sold out,” Yang said. “I'm thrilled that we get to continue the story of Shang-Chi and his siblings in the Five Weapons Society."
"We're going to show how Shang-Chi's brand-new role affects the rest of the Marvel Universe. We'll have him interact with old friends and new foes... and even old friends who become new foes," continued Yang.
"Dike Ruan and I are already hard at work," added Yang. "The stuff I've seen from Dike so far has been his best yet.”
Don’t miss what happens when Shang-Chi and his newfound family of warriors collide with the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes!
