Re: "Shang Chi, Master of Kung Fu" comic series to be reprinted starting Summer 2016!

I got the MOKF Omnibus #4 earlier this Fall. Wow - this is truly magnificent, and I don't say that lightly. This has the bulk of the late Gene Day's art on the title - superb work here. Truly gorgeous art re: these issues, and the reproduction is stellar. These stories he drew here have a noir quality to them, especially the scenes taking place @ dusk & at night. Day really creates a unique, edgy, and at times sultry atmosphere that I've never seen reproduced in any other comic I've read. It's a shame that he passed on so young & isn't around now to appreciate how good his art looks recolored & remastered in this stellar volume.

To a much lesser extent, also enjoying the non-Day issues, including the later ones with art by a young David Mazzuchelli - solid work here as well. I have never read the Bleeding Black or the Marvel Comics Presents/Wolverine issues, so it will be nice to get into those . As always with these Omnis, nice extras in the back re: pin-ups, b&w rough art, etc.
