bruce-lee-dragon-rises-tpLos Angeles, CA (December 2, 2016) – Get in the holiday spirit this season with the ultimate stocking stuffer: Darby Pop Publishing’s Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises trade paperback. With more than 80,000 Free Comic Book Day “preview editions” distributed, and 20,000 copies of Issue #1 sold, Bruce Lee is proving to be highly relevant 40+ years after his (supposed) death.

“We truly believe that Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises both honors the memory and continues the work of this multi-faceted man — actor, philosopher, teacher and, of course, supreme martial artist,” said Jeff Kline, founder of Darby Pop Publishing. Kline is also the book’s co-creator, having teamed with Bruce’s own daughter, Shannon Lee.

Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises chronicles the return of the real-life superhero in a present-day, all-ages comedy/action/adventure story. The Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises trade paperback collects the entire inaugural arc of the first-ever officially licensed Bruce Lee comic adventure, and adds exclusive bonus materials including rare photos and Shannon Lee’s personal recollections. This first compilation will be available at comic book retailers starting on December 14, 2016 – and is available to order (OCT161693) RIGHT NOW.

bl_1Series Synopsis: It’s 2012, and Bruce Lee never died. And he hasn’t aged. But he has no idea who he is, what’s happened in the world in the past 40 years, or why so many “thugs” want a piece of him. With the help of a fly BFF from the ’70s, Joe Toomey, P.I., and pair of precocious teens, Bruce will find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic villain and his very own conscience. The Dragon rises… and “walks on” once more!

Here’s just some of what Shannon Lee had to say about Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises:

• “I’m so excited to have our first official Bruce Lee comic book coming out for ALL AGES. It’s long been a dream of mine to introduce my father and his amazing legacy of action and philosophy to a whole new generation, and a comic book is a super fun way to do that.”

• “My father and the way he lived his life have been a daily inspiration for me, and I’ve dedicated a big part of my life to finding ways to keep his message alive in the world. I hope you enjoy our book and develop your own passion for Bruce Lee and his phenomenal legacy of courageous action!”
