The actual physical product is of very high quality. The outer cover is well-made, sturdy, and the cover image captures the spirit of the graphic novel quite well. The pages are of a strong material, and the illustrations are gorgeous. From a physical aspect, it is definitely worth the $25 price indicated on the cover.
As for the story, it is a highly entertaining journey through a world dominated by corrupted spirits, death, and, of course, a healthy amount of kung fu. I cannot claim to be incredibly well-versed in this genre, therefore I cannot comment on how original the work truly is, but from my limited experience, the story seems fresh and original. The characters are well drawn and crafted, and although not incredibly complex, this isn't a negative as complexity of character isn't a goal of the graphic novel. The point seems to be a love-letter to the kung fu genre masked as a fun and entertaining adventure through a martial world, and it excels as such. It is fun to read, interesting, and quite simply, cool.
I appreciated how almost every decision or event is given an explanation. It may not be the most logical explanation, but at least the author dedicated time to explain why certain things are the way they are in the story. Also, most events do not seem rushed or soiled by deus ex machina (though the ending may be seen as such).
Overall, this is a quality product, both in regard to its physical being and the story within. I definitely recommend it.
what else would a dork like myself want in a comic book...and this is more of a comic tome.
this is definitely the way to read the series....in a sub 500 page collection.
if you like shaw brothers films, the 70's, treachery, revenge, black magic, ghosts, and fun training sequences key to any
kung-fu movie - this is your book.
Born of a love of all things kung fu, “Infinite Kung Fu” is a melting pot of kung fu pop culture references. It has Shaolin monks, Blaxsploitation Kung Fu, Poison Kung Fu masters, Supernatural Martial Arts, a bit of anime influence and last but certainly not least zombies. A mash-up of all things pop culture associated with kung fu, this independent comic brings everything you love about the genre in ass-kicking abundance. But the martial arts, as major a part they play is only the framing piece for the story.
In a world where there is now more death than life, martial arts reigns supreme. The dead rise from their graves searching for new bodies for their spirits to inhabit. The circle of life has all but ended. It is into this world that a young soldier named Yang Lei Kung will arise to become a legendary hero.
Sounds cool right? I mean I could be talking about some upcoming movie. And the reason is because McLeod, who wrote and drew the book, frames the story like you’re watching an old school Kung Fu flick, complete with sound effects for special moves.Read more ›
The art work is great. It is black and white and might be a bit too graphic with blood and such for the squeamish, but I doubt people that are squeamish are going to check this book out. It's more fighting and blood than philosophy.
Also interesting are the Introduction by Gordon Liu and the Foreword by Colin Geddes. I also liked the Kung Fu School at the end of the book that discusses a very brief history of Kung Fu Cinema. Bottom line, if you want a fun violent graphic novel with a Kung Fu theme reminiscenttt of the old movies from the 1970s, check out Kagan McLeod's "Infinite Kung Fu."
Reviewed by Alain Burrese, author of the "Lock On Joint Locking Essentials" DVD series and others.
Having said all that, Infinite Kung Fu still boils down to the premise of Kung Fu masters fighting hordes of zombies in order to save the world from an evil emperor. It's a simple, pulpy, concept that the book executes perfectly with zany plot twists, excellent black & white art, and flawless kung fu logic. If you love old school kung fu movies and want to read a spiritual take on zombies, this comic is for you.
