    Overall, Shang-Chi: Master of the Ten Rings #1 is a fun debut issue which shows off why Gene Luen Yang is a master storyteller. The story by Yang is exquisite. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that fans of the movie and the character will surely enjoy.

    This is a beautiful and moving closure of the saga that GENE LUEN YANG put together for two years with 24 issues.

    This is the end of an era for Gene Luen Yang, and Shang-Chi will never be the same. This issue was a blast and a near perfect conclusion to the run that began only a few years ago.

    Master of the Ten Rings wraps up Gene Luen Yang’s recent run of Shang-Chi wraps up in an enjoyable manner. While it’s hard to bring about an end to many of the story threads that have been building in various Shang-Chi comics over the past year or two in a single issue, Master of the Ten Rings does a fantastic job of reshaping the titular character’s own morals and beliefs. On its own, Master of the Ten Rings isn’t the best Shang-Chi comic I’ve read, but it serves as a nice epilogue of sorts.

    Shang Chi: Master of the Ten Rings #1 is advertised as the end of Gene Luen Yang’s Shang-Chi Saga and is a satisfying conclusion. Shang-Chi feels like a well-rounded character and leader who deserves to be among the powerful forces of the Marvel Universe. With all that in mind and my particular connection to the character: this comic is a 4 out of 5 stars.

    I would recommend this one if you are a fan of this character or want to just try out a story with this character without having to catch up on a whole lot backstory to work out what is going on.
