Official Press Release

From acclaimed writer Stuart (Wolverine Noir; Namor: The First Mutant) Moore comes A Thousand Arts - a kung-fu action thriller unlike any you've ever seen! Set in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness, where an archeological dig uncovers a trove of 7,000 year old documents that describe both a lost and ancient Chinese civilization that once thrived in North America and practiced an previously unseen form of martial arts. When an assassins' guild attempts to steal this newfound power, the last living descendant of the original monks must reclaim his destiny, protect his people's secrets, and become the master of a thousand arts. This is the first in a new line of one-shots by Liquid Comics and producer Eric Eisner's "Epic Cycle" graphic novel imprint debuting this September!

"A Thousand Arts is a hardcore martial-arts action book with a heart," says writer Stuart Moore. "By the time I finished writing it, I was breathless. I hope readers feel the same way."
