Poison Kung Fu tomes and more!
John Dominguez
He really likes mangas, but he doesn't buy them unless he really likes the story, so it must be pretty good.

I actually did not order Infinite Kung Fu from Amazon; rather, I impulsively picked it up at a local book store, mainly due to its attractive cover and promising premise. That was a great decision.

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.

fluid figurative comics book art, zombies, kung-fu...
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.
don't hesitate....

Format: Paperback
If you like the old 70s Kung Fu movies, zombies, and graphic novels full of fighting and violence, you'll like Kagan McLeod's "Infinite Kung Fu." This 464 page graphic novel is light and fun entertainment, just like the old Kung Fu movies. I read it for the same reason I watch those old movies once in a while. Fun escapism reading.

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."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This title started out online as a webcomic and is now collected in a massive 460 page volume that really shows the strength of a long-form web comic. A traditional comic book would have delivered the same story in 150 pages or less, but the decompressed style of a webcomic allows the story to not just breath, but exhale, as it moves off on various wild tangents that eventually tie together and weave a depth to the story that provides a rich and entertaining experience.

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.

I came across a preview of this on the Top Shelf Comics page. I was instantly hooked. It draws from every era of kung-fu history, from it's beginnings as a Shaolin way of excercising, to the blaksploitation era, to the over the top anime martial arts. This book is alot of fun with some strange but great charatcers, awesome homages to oldschool Martial arts films (complete with sound effects) and an original story to boot. The East meets West infusion the comic brings is what makes it so much fun. One minute the characters are in a Shaolin Temple, the next they're in a town that's stuck in the 70's. Oh and did I mention zombies? Yup the undead roam the Earth as well. If Zombies and Kung-fu don't get your attention nothing will!
Written and illustrated by Kagan McCleod his love of the genere truly shines with his storytelling. He has created a diffinitive mythology complete with rules that makes the story all the more beleivable as you read it. Keeping up with the large cast of characters is a bit hard at first but by the time you've gotten a ways through the names and faces are all familiar and the story flows with them. The whole time I was reading this all i could think was this would make an amazing anime, or even live action film. Bravo to Mr. McCleod and here's hoping we get more like this from him.
