|Summary, etc.:|| One of YALSA's Top 10 Great Graphic Novels for Teens!Named one of the best graphic novels of the year by Publishers Weekly, Heeb Magazine, io9, CNN, Comic Book Resources, Complex, USA Today, Forbidden Planet International, IFC, ComicsAlliance, Paste, and Graphic Novel Reporter!"Pure awesome. From über-violent kung fu fight sequences and zombie stalkers, to blood-drenched battles among armies and supernatural beings, this book is a testament to just how cool a well-drawn and well-written martial-arts action epic can be. If you pick up only one comic book or graphic novel... let this be the one." - USA Today"Over 450 pages of stunningly choreographed fight scenes of epic imagination. Kagan McLeod is a master cartoonist." - CNN GeekOut"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)"Stunningly gorgeous... McLeod's unique brand of comic book wizardry practically oozes out of every panel as his art delivers animated stylings with a hip-hop flavor." - Complex"All of that buzz and hype was completely on the money... It's like the best kung-fu movie you've ever seen, unimpaired by time or budget constraints." - Comic Book Resources"A kung fu epic for people who don't buy into the kung fu cult." - Royal FlushInfinite 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!
