SHANG CHI: MASTER OF KUNG FU (2002) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Shang Chi: Master of Kung Fu #1
"Part 1, Mortal Spirit" Writer Doug Moench reunites with artist Paul Gulacy for new adventures that capture the greatest of Marvel's 1970s kung fu era. Shang Chi's name means "The rising and advancing of the spirit," and Marvel's martial arts master thought he'd left his father's games of death and deceit far behind him. But the lovely Leiko Wu, once Shang Chi's love, and now his friend Clive Reston's wife has been captured by the mysterious immortal St. Germain. Reston must track Shang Chi to the ends of the Earth to warn him that the woman they both love is in mortal danger.

On the Singapore docks in the midnight fog, Reston and his old MI-5 pal Black Jack Tarr start on the trail of St. Germain, not knowing if Shang Chi will come down off his mountain to help them. Against a virtual army of well-trained and armed assassins, Reston and Tarr mount a spirited but utterly hopeless attack. Only the explosive entrance of Shang Chi is enough to turn the tide and ensure that another nitro-charged, action adventure is well underway!
