Darby Pop Publishing and Bruce Lee Entertainment are pleased to announce that they are collaborating on a new comic book titled Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises, which will chronicle the return of the beloved actor, philosopher, teacher and – of course – martial artist in a present-day, all-ages comedy/action/adventure.
The first issue is being co-written by Bruce’s daughter, Shannon Lee, and Jeff Kline (Jackie Chan Adventures, Indestructible) with art by Brandon McKinney (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Doberman) and cover art by Bernard Chang (Green Lantern Corps, Indestructible).
Bruce Lee never died. And he hasn’t aged. But, he has no idea who he is, what’s happened in the world in the past 40+ years, or why so many “thugs” want a piece of him. With the help of a fly BFF from the ’70s – Joe Toomey, P.I. – and a pair of precocious Teens, Bruce will piece together a mystery more insidious than ever imagined, and find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic Villain and his very own conscience. In other words, the Dragon rises… and “walks on” once more!
The 48-page oversized first issue, Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises, will be available in April 2016 at comic book retailers and online.
