A new entertainment studio that focuses on authentic martial arts culture has unveiled their first comic book series: “The Adept”.
“The Adept” is an original story from entrepreneur, producer and activist Peter Shiao, written by Tasha Huo and Charlie Stickney with art done by Yishan Li.
The series, which has seen an exciting reception on their crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, has a 42-page first issue that follows the quest of Amy, a Chinese American who escapes an abusive home to master an ancient and rare martial art, preparing for the day when she returns home to face an unspeakable evil.
The new comic series is one of the most recent unveils by up-and-coming Immortal Studios which was founded by CEO Shiao. Immortal is gearing to become the premier entertainment studio of an interconnected “wuxia” universe of authentic and cultural martial arts stories. Wuxia is the fantasy genre that comes from Eastern culture and has permeated Western entertainment for decades without being named — blockbuster films like “The Matrix”, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, “Kung Fu Hustle” and “IP Man” are just a few iconic films that belong to this genre.
