Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   November 13, 2017
Action. And so much more.

How much you enjoy this probably depends on how much you enjoy the musings of the troubled hero. His thoughts and pondering so form the narration that runs the length of the story. Dense blocks of text on almost every page, as Shang-Chi tries to find... serenity.

Not your typical Marvel comic.

There's action, too, in the final scenes when some villains show up. But the early pages are devoid of activity. Mostly it's just stillness, as the hero's mind runs rampant.

Villain Attacks Hero? Yes. The actual plot is basic. Generic. Thieves show up. You can guess what happens next.

The pleasure here is in ShangChi's internal journey.

Worth Re-Reading? Yes. It's worth re-reading almost instantly, to get a better handle on the hero's subtle but epic journey.

8/10

  Sometimes when Doug Moench waxes philosophical it is just annoying. But sometimes it is genuinely interesting. This issue was refreshing and clever.

  So you did notice... naughty boy... (next panel) "we assume positions... Pull Leiko!!!"
Bow chicka bow bow!

If you didn't guess the outcome of the dinner, you're not a true Marvelite!
