The crew spend the first half of the episode highlighting Shang-Chi's comic origin and his dubious ties to the pulp villain, Fu Manchu, as well as Asian representation in comics, Gene Luen Yang's updated version of the character, and how it all ties into the upcoming movie.  The crew also find time to answer listener emails (01:05:27), address the  Spider-Man trailer (01:19:09), and Ashley gives a lesson on High Valerian (01:14:45). 

Plus, Recurring Segments: Fistful of Comics (00:56:09) & Champion Season (01:12:05)
