It wouldn’t be a new series launch without a few variant covers. Marvel Comics is pulling out all the stops for the next Shang-Chi series, kicking off next month from writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Dike Ruan. To celebrate the next chapter in the story of the master of martial arts, the publisher has pulled in artists like J. Scott Campbell, Superlog, Junggeun Yoon, and Benjamin Su to create variant covers for the first issue.
SHANG-CHI VS. THE MARVEL UNIVERSE! Shang-Chi and his family are back! And this time, they’re colliding head-to-head with the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes! Shang-Chi has finally taken his place as the leader of the Five Weapons Society. But using an evil secret organization as a force for good won’t be easy. And it’s about to get a lot harder when Shang-Chi’s fellow super heroes, like the Amazing Spider-Man, start to see him as the bad guy! Gene Luen Yang and Dike Ruan return to bring you the next chapter of this Marvel legend!
Shang-Chi #1 is set for release on May 19th, 2021.
