Sword Master #2

The recap page gets us caught up on the story, as the titular Sword Master receives a package from his missing father, setting him on a quest to find him which brings him into contact with Shang Chi. But there are evil forces out to steal his sword. You get the idea.

The issue opens to show Lin Lie receiving the package from, frankly, a pretty unprofessional delivery person.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
