Marvel revealed the creative team for another of its Legacy one-shots, reviving classic titles for one more issue with their Legacy numbering.
Former pro wrestler CM Punk will write the one-shot, with Dalibor Talajic on art. Mike Mayhew drew the cover pictured above. Though the story will only run for one issue, it will still last longer than Punk did in his UFC debut.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Syfy, Talajic revealed why his Kung Fu will be so authentic, saying, “Well … I myself was a kung fu practitioner. So if there are going to be fight scenes, you can expect them to be quite grounded in something that’s persuasive, not just random kicks. If you browse through the books I did so far, I always try to make my action scenes fluid and forceful. Over the top sometimes, yes, but fluid. And since it’s Shang Chi we’re talking about … He IS the greatest fighter there is — so yes, you can expect some seriously spectacular stuff.”
Master of Kung Fu #126 hits stores in November. The solicitation, and some relatively simple Legacy math, below:

Shang-Chi’s Day Off Part 1 (OF 1)
The Marvel Universe is full of fighters: brawlers, scrappers, weapons experts, mystical kung fu virtuosi. But there’s only one martial artist skilled enough to be called the greatest. SHANG-CHI has been a pinch hitter for a long time, stepping in for Avengers missions when no one else would do, but when no one can match your speed or skill, sometimes it’s best to work alone. To see what you’ve been missing if you don’t know Shang-Chi, don’t miss MASTER OF KUNG FU!
