Master Of Kung Fu To Get Four Omnibuses, Beginning In 2016 (Visual UPDATE)

Master_of_Kung_Fu_71Yesterday, at the Baltimore Diamond Retailer Summit, Marvel Comics committed to publishing the entirety of the Master Of Kung Fu in a series of four Omnibuses.

The series was created after Marvel failed to get the rights to the Kung Fu TV show, but did get the rights to the character Fu Manchu. So Marvel creates a comic book starring his son, Shang-Chi.

The series began in 1974 with issue 15 of Special Marvel Edition magazine by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin before it was renamed to The Hands of Shang-Chi: Master of Kung Fu, gained massive popularity and ran until issue 125 in 1983.

And now it's coming back to your bookshelf.

UPDATE: Heidi has a shot of the cover.
