Manga Gone Wild!

Li Jun: Martial Arts Epic is the debut work of my pal Grant. At times reminiscent of Blade of the Immortal, at times depicting a subtle influence from Scott McDaniel's early work, and at times a throwback to 1960's Kirby style 3 dimensional forced perspective that makes objects "pop" off the page! His kinetic lines and eye for camera placement tell an adventurous and fun-filled story that takes the best elements of manga storytelling tropes and infuses them with a modern sensibility. Want proof? Take a look at page 3 of Chapter 1, my personal favorite, and behold the way those small daggers pierce the panel border and come straight out at you!
