Even though I can't read Chinese, I still want to buy a copy of the graphic novel for the artwork. Hopefully, this comic will find a US publisher too. Maybe Darkhorse comics will pick it up.

Thanks AL and Patrick.
Actually we are think about that, we are looking for good translator for English version. There is not of special terms from Chinese martial art which is difficult to translate... Keep you guys update about that.
