Sword Master #5 is in stores from Marvel Comics next week, Marvel's best double-feature action-adventure comic on the stands each month. And yes, it's technically Marvel's only double-feature action-adventure comic on the stands each month, but even if it weren't, it would still be the best, because this book is pretty awesome. From Shuizu, Gunji, Greg Pak, Fonda Lee, Ario Anindito, Rachelle Rosenberg, and Travis Lanham, here's your preview…
In the main story, Lin Lie is trying to figure out this whole legendary sword-wielding thing while searching for his father, while in the second story, Shang-Chi and Sword Master have allied themselves with Ares because, surprise, Ares' son has been kidnapped again. Parent of the year, this Ares. Anyway…
Lin Lie continues to be totally outclassed by Ju Shuangshuang…
Even his sword likes her better than him!
Though she does decline to take it with her when she leaves him in the dust.
Will Lin Lie take a leap of faith?
And in the secondary story, Ares is being a total dick, refusing to show gratitude to the two people who are actually trying to help him rescue his son.
Honestly, we're not even sure why they're bothering to help when we all know Ares is just going to have his son kidnapped the next time he appears in a story anyway.
Sword Master #5 hits stores on Wednesday.
