Marvel Comics ‘Shang-Chi’ #2 Gets Second Printing with New Covers!

SHANGCHI2021002 Su e1605833640289

Marvel Comics’ fantastic reboot of Shang-Chi by Gene Luen Yang, Dike Ruan and Philip Tan is on fire! After the first issue went back for a second printing, featuring two great variant covers of Sister Hammer by Benjamin Su and Dike Ruan, issue #2 is also getting a second printing, and this time the covers highlight Brother Sabre! I love that we’re getting a series of these character covers by Su, and sketch variants by Ruan.

Shang-Chi has been an excellent series thus far, and issue #3, coming next week, is sure to ramp up the action. Assuming issue #3 does as well as the first two, I’m very excited about the prospect of a Sister Dagger variant!

Check out the two second print covers below as well as additional details!

New York, NY— November 19, 2020 — The new era of SHANG-CHI is now underway! Written by award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang and drawn by artists Dike Ruan and Philip Tan, each issue has been packed with startling revelations and pulse-pounding action scenes, and Marvel is excited to announce that the second issue will be getting a second printing!

Shang-Chi’s brand-new series has debuted new core elements that will define the character’s mythology moving forward — including his long lost family! Among those introduced is Brother Sabre, who takes the spotlight on the second printing variant covers of SHANG-CHI #2. A fiercely devoted member of the Five Weapons Society, Brother Sabre uses his trademark nine-ring sabre to defend his newfound brother from their power-hungry sibling, Sister Hammer!

Check out Shang-Chi’s powerful new ally in all his glory on Ben Su’s explosive second printing variant cover and on Dike Ruan’s second printing design variant, perfect additions to fans who collected Su and Ruan’s SHANG CHI #1 second printing covers. Pick them up at your local comic shop on December 30th!
