A murder. A mysterious league of protectors operating in the shadows. A legacy to protect. A city to save from filth, corruption and gangs. A girl who has to pose as a man to protect herself and her heritage. A young student lost in a concrete jungle he never chose to… Welcome to the world of Intertwined. It’s 1971 and for Juan Jin, life is about to become hell! He didn’t ask to be a hero. He didn’t ask to go to Chinatown. He only wanted to follow the way of Wing Chun, the Kung Fu style he masters brilliantly… but destiny had other plans for him. Intertwined tells a hero story from an immigrant perspective for the first time.
Give in to Kung Fu Noir with this volume collecting issues #1-6 and loaded with tons of bonuses including: additional pages of art, a never printed before story and exclusive art from some of the best artists in the industry!

With only one issue remaining in Intertwined, writer Fabrice Sapolsky begins to ramp things up. The issue starts with a massive fight between Juan and the Ghost Daggers. That manages to put Juan right where destiny wants him to be. Yet the spirit of metal has other plans for all the elemental spirits, not just the Spirit of Earth. Which leaves one wondering what will happen next and how this will all wrap up with the next issue.
The art by Fred Pham Chuong manages to continue the delicate balance between the mystical and the martial arts aspect of the story. There are clearly defined mystical elements as it reveals the look and host of each spirit. There is also a good amount of kung-fu action throughout which should make fans of that type of story happy and entertained.
At last, Juan Jin is the new Spirit of the Earth! But he has no idea why and what to do with his new powers! And frankly, he doesn’t care.Right now, he has more pressing matters than his “destiny”: the Triads are after him to get The Golden Dragon, the New York Police Department considers him a person of interest in a murder case and he doesn’t know who to trust…

This issue is a perfect jump-on point for new readers! And as a bonus, the ultra-rare issue #0 is included!
Finally, the other elemental spirits reveal themselves in Intertwined #4. It does manage to reveal the nature of how the spirits came to be, and how their champions came to exist. That helps to deepen the mystical elements of this kung-fu murder mystery. With only two more issues remaining I wonder what will happen next.
The art manages to bring the past to the forefront. As both past and present collide with a lot of action. All of that comes together with polished fight scenes throughout the issue.

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.
Give in to Kung Fu Noir! Juan Jin’s nightmare has only just begun. Not only he’s been drugged and brought from Hong-Kong to the United States illegally, but he now has to go through humiliation, rudeness and brutality of New York’s Sing Sing Prison guards. And if it wasn’t enough, everyone’s after him and the Golden Dragon statue he’s mysteriously connected to. Darkness calls Juan Jin… Will he give in?
For once things go from worse to better in Intertwined #2, as his family’s apparent wealth manages to pull enough strings to get him out of jail. The mystic side of this odd series written by Fabrice Sapolsky finally presents itself in a splendid way, even it comes later in the issue. Yet it seems Juan Jin isn’t yet aware of the truth of what the dragon statue represents or even what his destiny is the grand scheme of things?
There is a subtle change of art by Fred Pham Chuong as the environment changes from Hong Kong to New York City. The major spotlight for the comic reveals itself towards the later half of this issue. The mystic side is much more vibrant than I expected, a subtle artistic choice of Chuong. That slight difference gives it a nice contrast from the noir atmosphere this series has to it up to this point.
