Comics Experience founder Andy Schmidt recently produced a comic book in association with Vice.com entitled Ip Man: The Grandmaster of Kung Fu.
The 14-page comic book was distributed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con as part of the promotional efforts related to the upcoming film, The Grandmaster, by Wong Kar Wai. The film follows the exploits of martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee.
Vice.com also recently released an animated comic version which can be viewed right here.
In addition to being written and edited by Andy, the comic was also co-edited by CE alum and staff member Paul Allor, with lettering by CE lettering instructor Dave Sharpe.
Artists featured in the book include Chris Evenhuis, Marcondes, Keison, and Chee, Andy’s collaborator on IDW’s Five Days to Die miniseries.
