James Stokoe's insane Kung Fu epic comes to a glorious conclusion when the warrior Orphan Mo's hunt for the five former powerful disciples ends in an insane battle. Part Five Deadly Venoms and part surreal grindhouse, James Stokoe brings his knack for ultra-detailed fantasy imagery and over-the-top violence to this classic tale of revenge.

    As utterly sublime as Stokoe's work is here, it's hard to give this issue a perfect rating because of its deeply frustrating ending. Yes, the visuals are world class, and the story is just the right side of out-and-out-madness (you can decide for yourself what side that is), but it ends with a whimper rather than a bang. And while I'm sure the subsequent issues and remaining three beasts will more than deliver on the promise of this story, I still can't help but feel a little let down here. Read Full Review
