Another day, another Spider-Island tie-in! This one just keeps getting bigger and bigger! Today’s announcement brings us Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu. This particular story (like many of the others announced thus far) will take place over the course of a three issue limited series. The story, which stars Shang-Chi and Iron Fist, is described by writer Antony Johnston as adding elements of mystery and even gothic horror to the backdrop of Spider-Island. In addition to Johnston, the series will feature artist Sebastian Fiumara, who will provide both interior art and covers. Expect the first issue in August!

SPIDER-ISLAND Battles The DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU
As Manhattan sits quarantined from the rest of the Marvel Universe in Spider-Island, Shang-Chi and Iron Fist will have to cut their way through a web of mystery, magic and mayhem in Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)! In the midst of battle, what call could be so urgent that it takes the Immortal Iron Fist and the Master of Kung Fu away from the side of The Avengers? Beware, The Bride of Nine Spiders now stalks the streets – but is she the cause or the key to a horrific plot than threatens to sink all of Spider-Island?
“I’ve been a fan of Shang-Chi for years, so writing Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu is great fun, especially as Shang himself gets spider-powers,” said Johnston. “Then just throw in a little mystery, some gothic horror, a guest appearance by Iron Fist… and more Kung Fu per page than any other Spider-Island book, guaranteed!”
Shang-Chi, Iron Fist and the Immortal Weapons enter the Marvel Universe’s darkest corners this August, only in Spider Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)!
