    Gene Ching RETURNS!

    It's Wuxia Wednesday! (at least in my world) and our Gene Ching joined me for another bit of TIGER TALK. This time we examine Kung Fu Lyrics (Quan Pu 拳譜). Those iconic martial lyrics used in traditional martial arts as well as Wuxia (武俠). He elaborates on the challenges of his unique work for wuxia comics publisher Immortal Studios and his stance on Martial Poetry in the pages of KUNG FU TAI CHI.

    Also received a great little congratulatory message from one of our own...

    Which is, honestly, some food for the soul while I'm virtually throwing messages in bottles in every direction.

    However, the icing on the cake is recognizing the name of backer 55, who you'd recognize as he's a KUNG FU TAI CHI cover master!

    We're trying to get your Forum Fu back up to snuff. Post Robin here too: November-December-2017. Like with Anthony (to remind you - Anthony-Kelly-Martial-Arts-World-Record-Breaker) those subforums have longer ttt longevity. This Martial Media one is the most active because here is where all the fresh news coagulates.

    2022 Make More Comics Grant Announcement

    PATTERSON, California - The Make More Comics Arts Grant is proud to announce the winner of the 2nd Annual MMC Grant. Out of all the qualified submission packets we received the judging panel has chosen Patrick Lugo and his continuing comics project A Tigerís Tale, Vol. 1 as our 2022 award recipient.

    A Tigerís Tale, Vol. 1 is an epic kung fu fable in the grand tradition of A Journey to the West, Usagi Yojimbo, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. The story focuses on Kan, a boy who only ever wanted to live in his forest as a tiger should. When his mother adopted two human foundlings, his jealousy cost him his home. Exiled, Kan blames humans for his troubles but learns that he must help his brothers protect humanity from an invasion of creatures from the realm of myth: monsters, deities, and dragons.

    ĒI learned to read English sitting on my fatherís lap as he read to me from the comics I had borrowed from my older brothers. Those formative experiences crafted a life-long passion for a medium which continues to open unexpected doors. Itís because of this that I seek to express my heartfelt gratitude to 100% Comics and the MMC Arts Grant Committeeís esteemed members for, not just the investment represented by the 2022 MMC Art Grant, but the acknowledgement of an inspiration Iíve held for years; that there is a readership awaiting what can be found in the pages of A Tigerís Tale, Vol. 1.Ē
    For more information on Patrick Lugo, you contact him and purchase his work at

    The Make More Comics Arts Grant was founded in 2020 by Will Hoffknecht of Patterson, California with the goal of providing direct cash payments to support new and creative works in small press comic creation. The 2022 award is the second award granted and news about the 2023 grant will be announced later this year. For more information visit

    Cool TIGER TALK is back!

    I recently interviewed the legendary comic artist Geof Darrow, mastermind behind the extraordinary comic book: The Shaolin Cowboy and concept artist behind such films as The Matrix. Our zoom conversation ran way longer than expected and made the perfect reason to revive my February TIGER TALK interview series.

    Part 1 of our formal interview appears on tomorrow June 22, 2022: there, we discussed THE MATRIX, Jet Li, and pioneering martial arts themed comic books. But over the course of that interview we also had some informal conversations about early influences, favorite Kung Fu movies as well as some real-life martial arts heroes (and villains?)...

    Wuxia Warrior #1

    Our campaign offered a special backer tier for six intrepid backers willing to become the Wuxia hero they were destined to become!

    Using photo reference of their likeness was only the beginning. I reached out to each of them directly to learn what style of martial art and maybe preferred weapon their Wuxia character will specialize it. Utilizing decades of experience directing photo-shoots with some of the most renowned Kung Fu Masters in the world insured the perfect Kung Fu stance!

    They each received a one of a kind full color print suitable for framing along with their signed copy of the graphic novel.
