Average plot, but the narration is terrific and the twist at the end is really, really good. 8/10

  The Sons of the Tiger are way too vanilla.

  The Sons aren't very entertaining but the Shang-Chi story was quite good.

  These Kung Fu issues have great art with a lot of flow. Now, if the protagonists could get some quality foes and not win every fight so easily, it could become an even greater series.

  Gulacy's art reminds me a bit of Steranko on SHIELD. I wonder how many kids got hurt or beat up trying to use the kung fu lessons in these mags.

  First Moench/Gulacy team up! I am a sucker for these martial arts book, but that pairing is something I have been waiting to see in the Order with great anticipation.

  Holding hands again? Really? The Sons of the Tiger is still lame. I am slightly interested to see what the Silent Seven are all about. Shang-Chi is awesome. I really like his character. Story was a bit bland, but he makes up for it.

  Reminds me big trouble in Little China.

  Trail of the Ninja: it's missing something. It's alright, but nothing special. Just a series devoted to martial arts... I feel no connection to the characters.

Web of Bleeding Vipers: not the best, but the ending was ironic. I can only imagine what PETA would say to beating of dogs...

2.5 stars overall.

  Well PETA would say that anyone being attacked by a dog should allow themselves to be because animals are more important. C'mon this is the group that funds firebombing on testing facilities.
As for this issue, I have to agree with most everyone else, this was pretty average. Nothing terrible, but nothing special either. But that sweet flying front kick into the windshield was awesome.

  I really enjoy the little details that Gulacy puts into his artwork - the newspaper curled around Shang Chi's ankle with a headline reading MUGGER, the call-back to the first Shang Chi story with the split Fu Manchu face. I'm excited to see more Gulacy art.

  Shang-Chi isn't quite at Iron Fist's level of character so far, but Paul Gulacy's pencils give him a level of dynamics that's fun to look at. The story itself wasn't all that great, but Linda's dressing down of her rescuer seemed a little out of place. It didn't sour the entire story, but you wonder why Shang-Chi would bother rescuing damsels in the future.

3 stars, and a pox on Shang-Chi for beating up those poor defenseless puppies!

  The narration was so flowery, I'm not entirely sure what happened. It sure looked like Shang Chi got stabbed, but I can't guarantee it.
