After a successful wrestling career and a failed mixed martial arts career, CM Punk has been making a name for himself as a comic book writer at Vertigo and Marvel. His Marvel streak will continue as he takes on Shang-Chi in the Marvel Legacy one-shot Master of Kung Fu. Joining Punk on art is Dalibor Talajic.

The one-shot will be released as Master of Kung Fu #126 because that's not confusing at all the original Bronze Age MoKF ended at #125. Punk and Talajic are the second creative team announced on the series of Marvel Legacy one-shots, whic also include Silver Sable #36, Not Brand Echh #14, Dazzler #43, and Darkhawk #51. It was previously revealed that Devin Grayson would make her comic return with artist Marika Cresta on Power Pack #63.

The solicit info for the issue out in November is below.

Shang-Chi's Day Off Part 1 (OF 1)
The Marvel Universe is full of fighters: brawlers, scrappers, weapons experts, mystical kung fu virtuosi. But there's only one martial artist skilled enough to be called the greatest. SHANG-CHI has been a pinch hitter for a long time, stepping in for Avengers missions when no one else would do, but when no one can match your speed or skill, sometimes it's best to work alone. To see what you've been missing if you don't know Shang-Chi, don't miss MASTER OF KUNG FU!
