I remember this issue surprised me in several ways. The cover is cool, introducing a great new villain, but the splash page inside is insane! The story unfolds, jumping back and forth in time, documenting Smith’s investigation of a series of bombings and Shang-Chi’s battle with Shockwave.

And Shang-Chi really is defeated by Shockwave! Didn’t expect that. Only the timely intervention of Black Jack Tarr saves his life. Finally, the twist ending is a total surprise! Altogether a very entertaining comic.
