Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Infinite Kung Fu walks you through familiar corridors in the house of martial mayhem, but still smashes your face through walls of wonder and into rooms where kung fu is afraid to go The Martial World is ruled by a mysterious emperor whose five armies are each headed by a cruel and highly skilled kung fu master. Lei Kung, a soldier in one of these armies, grows tired of his master's evil ways and seeks enlightenment elsewhere. However, he soon finds that he's been chosen as the one who will put an end to the emperor's tyrannical rule - personally Allegiances are blurred as techniques are perfected, and Lei Kung becomes less certain who's friend and who's foe in each chapter Fists fly, limbs are lost, and blood vessels burst in this tale of furious rivals, supernatural masters, walking corpses, and above all, raging kung fu

Review:

"Begun as a self-published series more than a decade ago, the comics series Infinite Kung Fuhas now been put together in a collected edition with 200 pages of new material, and the results are remarkable. The story centers on Lei Kung, a martial arts expert and former soldier who must infiltrate the five kung fu armies of an evil emperor in order to bring him down. With characters like Moog Joogular, Thursday Thoroughgood, and the Eight Immortals to help guide him along the way, Lei Kung constantly works to perfect his art and learn the secrets that will allow him to defeat a host of nefarious characters. In the story, the world as we know it has regressed to a time when technology is all but gone. Lei Kung must rely on his martial skill against the hordes of reanimated corpses that are slowly destroying the planet. The great strength of this graphic novel is its originality, but equally impressive are McLeod's extraordinary illustrations and compelling narrative. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

The year is 2054, and life has been reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the surrogate, a new technology that lets users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It's a perfect world, and it's up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they'll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them. Welcome to The Surrogates, a daring, five-issue, full-color miniseries coming this July from Top Shelf Productions.
