Recent issues of Shang-Chi, one of Marvel’s hottest ongoing series, will be returning to comic shops with new printings next month! Written by award-winning author Gene Luen Yang with art by rising star Dike Ruan, Shang-Chi’s current series has thrilled readers with new villains and dynamic action that only Marvel’s greatest fighter can deliver! Each issue sees Shang-Chi face off against a different Marvel hero as he struggles with being the new leader of his father’s evil organization, the Five Weapons Society!

In Shang-Chi #3, Shang-Chi discovered his long-lost mutant sister, Zhilan, and was embroiled in a epic showdown with Wolverine to determine her fate!

And in Shang-Chi #4, Shang-Chi had no choice but to go up against the Fantastic Four in order to rescue his mother from the Negative Zone. This revelatory issue marked the first appearance of Shang-Chi’s true mother, Jiang Li, and raised more questions about Shang’s past than ever before! And the mystery will only deepen in Shang-Chi #5 where Shang will have to protect his mother from none other than Iron Man!

Review: Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1

Marvel Voices Identity #1

As a child growing up, I yearned to see myself in the entertainment I enjoyed. I remembered watching TV and movies and rarely saw an Asian face. When we did show up, we were mostly background players. Thankfully, I had Kung Fu Theater, but most of those movies came off cartoonish and were made in the 1960s and 1970s.

Fast forward to today and we are getting our first Asian superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while along the way, strides have been made across all media. We have had three Asian centered television shows to grace. We also have a boom of Asian creativity across the Diasporas that have never been seen before. On the precipice of the Shang Chi movie being released, Marvel has released the one-shot, Marvel’s Voices Identity #1, where the House Of Ideas showcase some of their greatest heroes which just so happens to be Asian.

In “What Is Vs What If”, Shang Chi is challenged by the alternate version of himself if chose not defy his father. In “That One Thing”, Jubilee visits her parents’ graves and revisits her childhood through memories. In “Jimmy Woo 1959”, Jimmy uses his genius to help an alien that almost gets killed by an Army battalion. In “Seeing Red”, Kamala Khan while visiting family helps the local hero in Karachi. In “Personal Heroes”, Wave fights a water monster in her hometown with a hero she idolizes, Bishop. In “Singular/Plural”, Silhouette agonizes over the dating scene, blaming her disability for meeting eligible men, but one encounter, leads her to realize she needs to step out of her own shadow. In “Traditional Pink Sushi”, Armor and Silver Samurai, argue over how to make sushi and eventually realizes traditions are something to be renewed. In the last story,” New York State of Mind”, Silk and Amadeus Cho gets their day off interrupted, as they get into a fight the scarecrow on top of the Statue of Liberty.

Overall, Marvel’s Voices Identity #1 is an entertaining set of stories which not only highlight these heroes but also the excellent creators. The stories by the different creators are wondrous. The art by the different artists are beautiful. Altogether, Marvel’s Voices Identity #1 is a comics which introduces readers to these heroes and these talented creators.
