Smart, feisty and a pretty capable fighter, Juan is already a cut above your average young man. Like all young men he’s got big plans: fight in (and win) the local kung-fu tournament, use the prize money to move himself and his long-suffering mother out of the ghetto and pay his equally long-suffering teacher back for all the practice dummies he’s demolished. Unfortunately for Juan, his uncle recently died and his life will never be the same.
Without giving too much away Intertwined, the newest comic from Spider-Man Noir’s Fabrice Sapolsky and rising artist/writer Fred Pham Chuong, harkens back to two of my favorite things: The Big Boss and Star Wars: A New Hope. The story is an interesting mix of the action sequences and day-to-day drama of The Big Boss, with just a touch of the mysticism of A New Hope, which is fitting as the Star Wars Universe itself is deeply rooted in the principals of The Wu Xing.
Sapolsky and Chuong’s artwork captures the frenetic pace of Hong Kong with everything, from the funeral home to the school, teaming with life and movement. Each character has a distinct look and feel while the fight scenes give off a roughness that makes you feel the hits.
With Juan headed to New York to collect his inheritance and far too many people invested in his movements things are about to get interesting. I look forward to seeing what’s next…
