Darby Pop Publishing and Bruce Lee Entertainment have announce a new comic book titled Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises, chronicling Bruce Lee's return in a present-day, all-ages comedy/action/adventure. The first issue is co-written Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee, and Jeff Kline (Jackie Chan Adventures, Indestructible) with art by Brandon McKinney (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Doberman) and cover art by Bernard Chang (Green Lantern Corps, Indestructible).

Here's the series' plot synopsis:

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 a pair of precocious Teens, Bruce will piece together a mystery more insidious than ever imagined, and find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic Villain and his very own conscience. In other words, the Dragon rises… and "walks on" once more!

The 48-page oversized first issue will be released in April 2016. Darby Pop Publishing and Bruce Lee Entertainment will be hosting a special signing at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2015 on Saturday, Oct. 31 at Booth #907 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with Shannon Lee, artist Brandon McKinney and cover artist Bernard Chang autographing limited-edition free posters of the #1 cover. Darby Pop will also be giving away from Bruce Lee items throughout the convention.
