Bruce Lee: The Walk of the Dragon, an all-new, all-ages, full-color comic adventure, releases as a “one shot” on March 28, 2018 courtesy of Darby Pop Publishing. The self-contained story lives in the same continuity as the hugely successful Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises, but shines even more of a spotlight on one of history’s few real-life superheroes. This special issue was written by animation superstar Nicole Dubuc (My Little Pony, Star Wars: Rebels, Transformers: Rescue Bots). Interior art is once again courtesy of Brandon McKinney with a cover from John Haun.
“We truly believe that Bruce Lee: The Walk of the Dragon both honors the memory and continues the work of this multi-faceted man – actor, philosopher, teacher and, of course, supreme martial artist,” said Jeff Kline, founder of Darby Pop Publishing. Kline is also the title’s co-creator, having teamed up with Bruce’s daughter, Shannon Lee.
Story Synopsis: Philosopher/teacher/real-life superhero Bruce Lee is back. And, let’s be honest, the world needs him now more than ever. Taking a brief respite from battling an otherworldly evil, Bruce attempts to navigate modern-day Southern California despite still suffering from amnesia and having been “out of the loop” for over 45 years. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a simple “lunch run” soon turns into a comedy of errors involving mistaken identity, a Film Festival, and the pokey. And despite never being one to initiate fisticuffs, Bruce continues to find it difficult to both hide his martial arts skills… and keep his shirt on.
All told in a single-issue format that requires no prior knowledge, and reaches its own satisfying conclusion.
Here’s just some of what Shannon Lee had to say about Bruce Lee: The Walk of the Dragon:
- “It’s long been a dream of mine to introduce my father and his amazing legacy of action and philosophy to a whole new generation, and a comic book is a super fun way to do that.”
- “My father and the way he lived his life have been a daily inspiration for me, and I’ve dedicated a big part of my life to finding ways to keep his message alive in the world. I hope you enjoy our book and develop your own passion for Bruce Lee and his phenomenal legacy of courageous action!”
