    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jul 1, 2021

    Its only issue two but weve already been treated to a fight with Spider-Man, Captain America, agents of AIM, Hydra, and the Hand, plus a new addition to Marvels female villain pool, and subterfuge and intrigue. Genes adaptation of a figure from an old Chinese adventure book is pure magic. Gene and Dikes working relationship is giving me Claremont & Byrne levels of excellence, because each issue seems they push each other to do better than the last. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 28, 2021

    Shang-Chi #2 continues to be a rollicking good time. It's fun and not afraid to try out new takes on the hero fights hero concept. It's also episodic in nature, allowing for anyone to dip in and enjoy the adventure while ever so slightly building towards a showdown between Shang-Chi and Marvel's greatest heroes.

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jun 29, 2021

    While the battle between Shang-Chi and Captain America is fast, the battle with the villains and especially Lady Iron Fan is well executed classic action fun. The entire issue is a well made heist plot and the pure love the creative team has for this character and this madcap story is palpable. Although Shang-Chi isn't battling the Marvel Universe, he is reconnecting with it, and through this filter with fans old and new. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Jul 5, 2021

    The emotional resonance between these characters feels genuine, the action scenes feel organic in their development, the "giving you some Street Fighter" versus vibe is tight, and this book is a winner. Read Full Review
