"The best elements of horror, Westerns, and of course, kung fu films are seamlessly interlaced to tell a highly imaginative tale. You couldn't sandblast the smile from my face as I read this." -- Ain't It Cool News
"INFINITE KUNG FU is glorious and deranged in the way that all comics should be." --Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan, Red, and Crooked Little Vein
"The great strength of this graphic novel is its originality, but equally impressive are McLeod’s extraordinary illustrations and compelling narrative." -- Publishers Weekly(starred review)
Infinite Kung Fu walks you through familiar corridors in the house of martial mayhem, but dares to take you where kung fu is afraid to go!
The Martial World is ruled by a mysterious emperor whose kung fu armies are each headed by a cruel and highly skilled master. Here, where the way of the fist is a way of life, ex-soldier Yang Lei Kung must infiltrate the emperor’s forces and stop him from destroying all life on the planet. Allegiances are blurred as techniques are perfected, and Lei Kung becomes less certain who’s friend and who’s foe in each chapter!
Fists fly, limbs are lost and blood vessels burst in this tale of furious rivals, supernatural masters, walking corpses, and above all, raging kung fu!
Begun as a self-published series more than a decade ago, the comics series Infinite Kung Fuhas now been put together in a collected edition with 200 pages of new material, and the results are remarkable. The story centers on Lei Kung, a martial arts expert and former soldier who must infiltrate the five kung fu armies of an evil emperor in order to bring him down. With characters like Moog Joogular, Thursday Thoroughgood, and the Eight Immortals to help guide him along the way, Lei Kung constantly works to perfect his art and learn the secrets that will allow him to defeat a host of nefarious characters. In the story, the world as we know it has regressed to a time when technology is all but gone. Lei Kung must rely on his martial skill against the hordes of reanimated corpses that are slowly destroying the planet. The great strength of this graphic novel is its originality, but equally impressive are McLeod s extraordinary illustrations and compelling narrative.
