Another day, another "Spider-Island" tie-in: this time it's Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, from the creative team of writer Antony Johnston (no strager to Marvel tie-ins as the writer of Shadowland: Blood on the Streets), and artist Sebastian Fiumara (Loki, Ender's Shadow).Like Spider-Island: The Amazing Spider-Girl and Spider-Island: Cloak & Dagger, it's three issues starting in August, with a $2.99 cover price. Marvel's full press release follows: SPIDER-ISLAND Battles The DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU As Manhattan sits quarantined from the rest of the Marvel Universe in Spider-Island, Shang-Chi and Iron Fist will have to cut their way through a web of mystery, magic and mayhem in Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)! In the midst of battle, what call could be so urgent that it takes the Immortal Iron Fist and the Master of Kung Fu away from the side of The Avengers? Beware, The Bride of Nine Spiders now stalks the streets – but is she the cause or the key to a horrific plot than threatens to sink all of Spider-Island?
“I've been a fan of Shang-Chi for years, so writing Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu is great fun, especially as Shang himself gets spider-powers,” said Johnston. “Then just throw in a little mystery, some gothic horror, a guest appearance by Iron Fist... and more Kung Fu per page than any other Spider-Island book, guaranteed!”
Shang-Chi, Iron Fist and the Immortal Weapons enter the Marvel Universe’s darkest corners this August, only in Spider Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)!
