A murder. A mysterious league of protectors operating in the shadows. A legacy to protect. A city to save from filth, corruption and gangs. A girl who has to pose as a man to protect herself and her heritage. A young Kung Fu student lost in a concrete jungle he never chose to... Welcome to the world of Intertwined. It's 1971 and for Juan Jin, life is about to become hell! He didn't ask to be a hero. He didn't ask to go to Chinatown. He only wanted to follow the way of Wing Chun, the Kung Fu style he masters brilliantly. But destiny had other plans for him!
The first ever Kung Fu Noir series starts here on the heels of its successful campaign on Kickstarter, from Fabrice Sapolsky (Spider-Man Noir, One-Hit Wonder) and hot new French sensation Fred Pham Chuong (who also practices Kung Fu himself)! It's the creator-owned comic book series you can't wait to read, even if you don't know it yet. And it's from the House of Noir itself, Dynamite Comics!

    Sapolsky and Chuong's artwork captures the frenetic pace of Hong Kong with everything, from the funeral home to the school, teaming with life and movement. Each character has a distinct look and feel while the fight scenes give off a roughness that makes you feel the hits. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Larose Oct 5, 2016

    The comic is a fine example of the balancing act the medium can accomplish. There's an ancient prophecy but that's offset by the local gangs. The story strives for an international, maybe even interdimensional weight, but is still centered on the character of a grounded kid with real problems. Intertwined wraps together its genre with its mediums"the grit and living texture of Hong Kong cinema within the expanding and impossible worlds of comics and creating something that feels entirely new.

    Graphic Policy - christopher scott author Nov 6, 2016

    The art is a blend of western style and eastern scenery for the most part. While there is a strong sense of flow in the action, there is something that is waiting to be revealed with the plot. I won't spoil the ending but it will leave you scratching your head I think. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Oct 5, 2016

    It's hard to really say ifIntertwined is good or bad just now. Its set up seems to be like some sort of modern-day Avatar: The Last Airbender and this issue is just so much set-up that there is almost no real plot. We get things happening to Juan that move the story along, but as to any idea where it is going other than involving the elements, we don't get many clues, so this issue isn't perhaps the best judge of the series and depending on how they branch out from here will really help define this series. As of this issue it seems to be something that has a lot of potential and while there isn't much plot, Juan is a strong enough character that his slice of life adventure sets a good pace for the first issue.

    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Oct 4, 2016

    Overall, as much as I enjoy watching some old kung fu movies, I don't watch them because they are good films. I watch them because they are fun. This comic seems to me to be very much the same. It's going to be more fun than anything else. Don't expect to be blown away by the story, nor the artwork, but then again, they are not so bad that they take away from anything, but rather do enhance the feel of a good old cheesy kung fu movie.
