Even though he has nothing to do with the usual stuff I talk about here, Shang Chi, the Master of Kung Fu is too awesome not to mention when other people are talking about him.
Snell had a great post a while back about why Shang Chi rules and how well it worked to combine kung fu with Bond-style spy adventure. My Shang Chi fascination comes entirely from the Steve Englehart/Jim Starlin issues; I've never read the Doug Moench/Paul Gulacy run.
I sure want to now, though.
Meanwhile, Bully's talking about the time Shang Chi teamed up with the Ever-Lovin Blue-Eyed Thing to beat up Hydra agents in London. And he's using his own vacation photos from the Big Cucumber Sandwich to compare Marvel's version of the city with our own.
