    Dike Ruan's art is fantastic. There is some great energy to the panels and the fights are dramatic and filled with details. The flashback scenes by Tan are great as well and I love the contrast in styles. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 28, 2020

    Shang-Chi #2 is another win for the team updating what could easily fall into stereotypes. The action is solid but it's the more human moments that really stand out in the issue. This is an issue, and series, that realizes that the main character at the center is what's interesting, not just action sequences. Shang-Chi matures the character and series and shows that with a little work, classic characters can feel new and fresh while still honoring what has come before. Read Full Review

    This issue certainly makes for some fun kung-fu superheroing that embraces what we love about the genre without feeling stereotypical; exactly what this Shang Chi needs if he's going to take his place as a marquee Marvel hero. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Oct 28, 2020

    Shang-Chi #2 features a surprisingly emotional reunion between Shang-Chi and his family while upping the stakes for the Master of Kung Fu. With the new elements introduced, I'm eager to see how Shang deals with the other members of the Five Weapons Society and how he escapes a near-death experience. Read Full Review

    After debuting to a swift tempo in its first issue, Shang-Chi shows in its second it has no plans on slowing down. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 31, 2020

    A perfectly fine and relatively straight forward issue solidifies, for me, at least, that this comic isn't anything to write home about. Read Full Review
