By-the-numbers action as the ongoing story takes several twists.
Almost nothing is what it seems here. Maybe a bit too much, but an enjoyable read nonetheless. 6/10

Issue Synopsis
 
Shareen makes a run for it as Blackjack Tarr and Shang-Chi head to try and retrieve the Golden Dragon. They arrive at a Chinese funeral parlor where they encounter a somehow revived Cho-Li. Tarr turns into a demon and Shang-Chi is forced to fight him and Cho-Li's minions. Shang-Chi wins and Cho is forced to flee. Looking for him Shang--Chi encounters the real Blackjack Tarr, who has an agent who previously was guarding the statue in two. As they talk they are confronted with a giant version of the statue.

  -Shangy looks like a blond Caucasian in this story--Boo!
-So it's the "Maltese Dragon?"
-Sons of the Tiger continue their hokey banality--Are you really gonna just take that punch Abe?!?
-The story would've been much more believable had they sent the Tigers in as "undercover prisoners."
-"What we've got here...is failure to communicate..."

  Shadow Thief = Poor Man's Ra's al Ghul.

Sons of the Tigers, in light of recent events in the USA, was good and relevant IMO.

  I meant Kwai, not ShadowDude.

  And the mystery grows deeper and deeper, where shall it go next? Shang-Chi has got to have serious trust issues by this point, jeez. Well at least the Black Jack that was being a***(well, more of a dick) ended up not really being him. Actually I honestly think this is the nicest the real one has ever been to Shang, even if he does still insist on calling him "chinaman".

  This arc has been dragging on too long. I like a nice twist as much as the next guy, but with this many of them itís starting to get annoying.

  I think this is starting to get a little long in the tooth as well. At least the excessive amount of elements of the story are starting to come together in a coherent manner, but I'm left thinking that this arc should probably be wrapped up next issue, instead of taking two issues. We'll see. 3 stars.
