    Shang Chi, Daughters of the Dragon, and the Sons of the Tiger!? Okay, so looks like Marvel is getting more of my money.

    2014 is feeling like a return to the Bronze Age on the Marvel Universe side of things. The X-side seems like 1990s Image.

    I'll grab this one when it hits trade.Not having followed this character back in the day it'll be a good intro for me. Glad to see Marvel is still trying new things but the Marvel fans won't buy this.

    This is a pretty bad team on this book. I don't like either the writer or artist. I will have to hear some pretty rave reviews before I will even check this out.

    Super awesome news. Hope it's somehow successful enough to spin off into an ongoing.

    Great to hear about the miniseries. Indeed this new one seems cool since it will introduce his past spy roots to a new audience. Wonder who will be the one who passed away. Clive Reston? Leiko Wu?

    What sucks though is that I won't be able to get this until June! Crap!

    I'd go for it in a heartbeat at $2.99. If it's $3.99, I'll get the trade on Amazon (I'd prefer to support my LSC).

    I didn't see the price anywhere.

    Possible trade wait for me. Sounds like fun, but it depends on the art.

    Oh it's totally gonna be $4. But hey, if you want Shang Chi back any time in the next few years, this is your very best chance to let Marvel know. WTF people, it's Shang Chi, get hyped!

    I've never really been a Shang-chi fan, and I really don't like the idea of the story being set into motion by a fridging (that's such a cheap/lazy story idea). Still, I love martial arts stuff, I love espionage stuff, and it's a mini, so I'll probably still check it out.

    Love the character. Not experienced the writer. Hate the artists (his work anyway).

    Glad to see Marvel putting Shang out there, but this is an iffy one for me based on creative team.

    Need to wait and see the previews.
