Marvel reboot Master of Kung Fu for Secret Wars without Fu Manchu connection

Secret_Wars_MASTER_OF_KUNG_FU

Shang Chi IS Coming back, as is the title Master of Kung Fu…as part of Secret Wars Battleworld, Shang Chi is back and he has a whole new origin—which is Iron Fist’s but…who is counting. Also, he’s now…an X-man? Haden Blackman and Dalibor Talajic are the creative team, and Francesco Francavilla does the covers.

Nice Art: Marvel offers some Elektra previews

Normally I’m not in favor of digging up characters who were done perfectly by their creator, but Elektra has been revived so many times, we might as well give it a go again—this time as part of Marvel’s experimental push for female-led titles. This new version comes out in April and features writing by Haden Blackman and are by Mike Del Mundo. In fact these pages by Del Mundo look pretty sharp and remind me of….another book with a female lead.
