    Yang and Ruan continue re-introducing Shang Chi to the rest of the Marvel Universe, as he continues to try to reform the Five Deadly Weapons into a force for good. Yang mixes the comedy with the action, and the witty banter between Shang and his siblings will make you want some more. Read Full Review

    Gene Luen Yang continues to have a lot of fun by having Shang-Chi and his family meet up with other members of the Marvel Universe. Only this time out it is kind of family meeting family. As Shang-Chi's Five Weapons Society meets up with Marvel's first family. The Fantastic Four. We get a nice handoff and connection to the next issue at the close where Reed Richards places a call to Captain America. So, next month Shang-Chi will seemingly meet Iron Man as a result of this phone call. I look forward to seeing how all that pans out. Read Full Review

    Check this out, Shang Chi #4 by Gene Luen Yang is NOT bad at all. Even though there is a bucket load of history that comes from Shang-Chi, we are at the perfect spot to dive into his mythos. Several months ago, I reviewed my first Shang-Chi issue and did a soft dive into his comics. For the most part, he had multiple teams ups but where he excels at, is his solo work. Work such as this where he is the main character and not playing the background role. I would 100% recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Shang-Chi #4 further advances Shang-Chi's personal story while throwing another major Marvel staple against him. The Fantastic Four family must face Shang-Chi and his family and it's yet another exciting chapter in a series that can be devoured by casual readers and Shang-Chi fans alike. After loving the film, it's clear at this point Yang is doing a great job making Shang-Chi more accessible. Read Full Review
