That’s more like it. Last issue’s vendetta continues, with plenty of room to breathe. At turns heart wrenching and terrifying, the best moment in an issue full of them is the appearance of shadowy figures slowly crawling out of the ocean as Shang Chi is tortured by his enemies. This issue takes the rebound from the last and dunks it.
The cover is a bit of a mystery. Shang Chi’s frogmen foes appeared in the previous issue, which makes me wonder if that issue’s sudden change of scripters included a replacement cover as well.
