About the Author

First and foremost a comic creator, Kirkman has seen groundbreaking success in the adaptation of his comic book titles into major franchises in all forms of content. In 2010, his Eisner award winning series, The Walking Dead, was developed into an AMC television series. It has become a worldwide phenomenon as the highest-rated basic cable drama of all time. The property has also been extended into a blockbuster game franchise, licensing business and ongoing publishing success.

Additional Kirkman comics include Oblivion Song, Die!Die!Die!, Invincible, Outcast, Super Dinosaur, Battle Pope, Astounding Wolf-Man, and Thief of Thieves.

Kirkman also serves as consulting producer of The Talking Dead, the popular talk show hosted by Chris Hardwick that deep dives into each week's episode of both The Walking Dead and its companion series Fear the Walking Dead. Kirkman is co-creator, writer and producer of The Walking Dead's companion series, Fear the Walking Dead.

He is also executive producer of the AMC series Robert Kirkman's Secret History of Comics, and the Korean pre-apocalyptic drama, Five Year. Kirkman's popular demonic-exorcism comic, Outcast, was adapted and produced for Cinemax. His second longest running coming book series Invincible is currently being adapted for a live action movie for Universal and an animated series for Amazon. Kirkman will serve as Executive Producer on both adaptations.

Robert is also the Chairman of Skybound Entertainment. Robert, an advocate for creator rights, co-founded Skybound alongside his longtime business and producing partner David Alpert in an effort to ensure creators are able to maintain their intellectual property rights and creative control.

LIBRARY JOURNAL (STARRED) -- A Chinese American man named Owen Johnson's quest to solve the mystery behind his birth parent's disappearance leads him to the peak of a windswept mountain in China, where he discovers an ancient Shaolin temple inhabited by a group of warriors calling themselves the Order of the Flaming Fist. After proving his martial arts prowess, the order's leader, Master Wei Lun, invites Owen to stay and begin training. Soon, Owen begins a forbidden romance with another warrior, Ling Zan, and learns that the order has two missions: to rediscover the long-lost ability to generate devastating fireballs and to ensure their temple's secrets never fall into the hands of their adversaries, the Scorched Earth Clan.
VERDICT Kirkman (Oblivion Song. Vol. 3) and Samnee (Black Widow: The Complete Collection) have created a fun homage to classic martial arts films and comic books, and while this volume serves as a prelude to an upcoming monthly series, it includes more than enough action and intrigue to satisfy on its own.
