With Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings only months away, what better way to get to know the character than with a brand new comic series. On May 19th, Marvel will be taking their greatest fighter in a whole new direction while building and transforming the Shang-Chi mythos.
Shang-Chi’s story continues with the award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang and rising artist Dike Ruan. To celebrate the upcoming release of the first issue, Marvel have shared the stunning cover for the first issue as well as a collection of spectacular variant covers.

After the events of his last series, Shang-Chi has finally taken his place as the leader of the Five Weapons Society but using an evil secret organization as a force for good won’t be easy. And it’s about to get a lot harder when Marvel’s biggest heroes start to question his motives!
Each issue of the action-packed first arc will pit Shang-Chi against a different Marvel hero including Spider-Man, Captain America, and Wolverine. In addition, the series will introduce new villains with sinister goals for Shang-Chi and his newfound family of warriors. The new series is perfect for longtime fans and newcomers eager to learn more about Marvel’s greatest fighter!
We’re pretty excited to see this series unravel. Especially since we’ll be able to see Shang-Chi go up against some of Marvel’s biggest heroes. For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this series will be a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the wonderful and epic lore surrounding Shang Chi. So make sure you pick up your copy on May 19th.
