Things become really spooky for Juan Jin. Nature starts acting really weird around him…as if plants, flowers, vines, trees or land were listening! His destiny is about to be fulfilled: he’ll soon become the new Spirit of the Earth!

Meanwhile, the Ghost Daggers, the gang led by the nefarious Nei Chang, are putting everyone in Chinatown under pressure. They want to find the Golden Dragon statue at all costs!Kung-Fu action, crime and mysterious, new characters all mixed up… The Kung-Fu Noir series has never been so aptly named!

Kung-Fu action, crime and mysterious, new characters all mixed up… The Kung-Fu Noir series has never been so aptly named!

The more mystic side of this series makes a grand appearance in Intertwined #3. The issue really shows off the power of those who are possessed by the elemental spirits. Yet for all of the reveals, only two of the five have made an appearance. We’ve still got lots to go! I do wonder if the spirits of the other three elements will finally appear. If so how will they handle the death of one of their own? This is some of the excitement that writer Fabrice Sapolsky has set up in the issue.

This issue helps showcase artist Fred Pham Chuong‘s ability and we’re treated to flowing and engrossing scenes of action. The issue has a lot of martial arts based action as well as bringing in a lot more plot through it all. The issue manages to reveal how the statue has affected Juan. That shows off the beginning stages of his new life and has me excited to see what happens next.
