Rise of the Kung Fu Dragon Master

Chris Mancini is a crazy-talented story teller who is far more entertaining than anybody you know personally — even cousin Chip, who I really should tell you keeps passing off Oscar Wilde’s stories as his own. Don’t reward Chip for making it weird. Reward Chris for producing a great book. It’s the right thing to do.
Rise of the Kung Fu Dragon Master is a comedy/action/fantasy graphic novel about Rick, a small-time crook in Los Angeles who becomes an unlikely hero in a mystical battle between good and evil that has been fought since the days of Ancient China.
It’s a love letter to the ‘80’s action, buddy, and comedy movies Chris Mancini grew up on. Along with the action/comedy, the story explores the self-destruction a life of anger and violence can bring, and how to follow a new path that can lead to peace and balance. But, even so, the book features epic martial arts fights, fantastic creatures, and surly baristas.
