SHANG-CHI Is Getting His Own Comic Book Series (And A New Look) Ahead Of Upcoming MCU Debut

Marvel Comics has announced today that their greatest martial artist is set to return to action (with a brand new costume) in an upcoming comic book series from Gene Luen Yang, Dike Ruan, and Philip Tan...

Marvel Comics has confirmed that Eisner Award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese) is teaming up with artists Dike Ruan (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) and Phillip Tan (Black Order) for a new Shang-Chi series. The hero will boast a new costume designed by artist Jim Cheung.

This comes ahead of the character's live-action debut in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

According to the official description, "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."
 
This isn't the hero's first solo series, but with a movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the way, there's bound to be a lot of interest in this fresh take on Shang-Chi. 

Yang is clearly excited about the series as he says, "I mean, it’s Shang-Chi. He’s probably the most prominent Asian — I guess he’s Asian-American now since he’s moved over here — Asian-American super hero." Pushed for details on the series, he added: "The basic idea that his father is a supervillain is still there. 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."

What do you guys think about Shang-Chi's new look?
