Black Leopard Comes To America
By Brian Jacks
ComicsOne has announced that they will kick off the fall season with Black Leopard, Wing Shing Ma’s contemporary kung fu epic.
In an effort to change gears and broaden the kung fu fan base, ComicsOne has chosen a very different type of comic from the creative genius of Wing Shing Ma (Storm Riders and Heaven Sword & Dragon Sabre). You’ll find no sword and fantasy themes here. The publisher says readers are in for a more down to earth, yet no less kinetic adventure. More akin to a modern day kung fu movie, Black Leopard is energy charged, they say. It blends powerful martial arts action similar to that found in films like the Matrix and Jet Li’s The One with action movie themes including special task forces and espionage complete with intense bullet-riddled gun battles and white-knuckle car chases.
