    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 30, 2020

    Shang-Chi #4 beautifully highlights the native traditions of its title hero and strengthens his bond with his family. With only one issue left, Shang and his family are in for the fight of their lives. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Jan 6, 2021

    I have really enjoyed how writer Gene Luen Yang has mixed the martial arts action with mythology. And as someone that lives in the UK that is relatively uneducated about what the British did in regards to selling Opium to China as a means of trying to pacify and take control of the country. The way the writer ties all of that into the backstory for this book is brilliantly executed. It's a real high point for the book. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 30, 2020

    The art was dynamic and both styles beautifully contrasted each other. The present story was filled with great action and atmosphere. The flashback story was filled with beautiful action beats and destructive energy. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    A peaceful and enlightening graveside chat was a refreshing change of pace from constant urgency and offered some of the boldest and most imaginative sceneries we've seen yet in the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 3, 2021

    Gene Luen Yang continues to excel with how he has been expanding on the mythology around Shang-Chi's character. The developments in Shang-Chi #4 provide greater interest in the past, present and future of the Five Weapons Society. The stage is now set for the finale of this mini-series to show why this should be just the start of exploring the world around Shang-Chi. Read Full Review
