Among the myriad worlds unveiled in Marvel's Secret Wars this summer is one inspired by Tibetan mysticism, Chinese mythology, and Marvel's very own mysterious fictional enclave of martial artist, K'un-Lun. Master of Kung-Fu by Haden Blackman and Dalibor Talajic offers a Shaw Brothers spin on the Marvel Universe, centered on Shang-Chi's fight with his evil wizard father, and introducing new versions of Kitty Pryde, Elektra, Iron Fist, and more.

Marvel has provided us with an exclusive unlettered four-page preview, which you can check out below. The preview offers a beautiful preview of the history of the battles that defined K'un-Lun, and introduces us to Shang-Chi at what looks like a pretty low ebb. To get a taste of the rest of the cast, check out the previously released character sketches for the series in the gallery above. Based on everything we've seen, it looks like a treat for the eyes; hopefully the fight scenes will be just as impressive!

• Welcome to the mystical land of K’UN LUN, where the study of martial arts reigns supreme!
• In a world where everyone is well-trained in at least some form of deadly combat, what becomes of a drunken, drop-out failure?
• If anyone speaks out against Emperor Zu, the price is their head! Good thing Shang-Chi’s a man of discretion and...oh, who are we kidding. This is going to get nasty.
