Kung fu knives and guts

Jog posted a crazy essay about Hong Kong comics legend Tony Wong here. Lotsa great, gory covers as well! Wow, man! I love this paragraph:
Before you, says the image, waits a kingdom of untethered entertainment. Comics with a maniac in charge, and he's got a message for YOU. One that promises the glory of another nation's pop, to infest the one that's here. I suppose that's the message of all pop comics from outside cultures - but Jademan Wong made it all seem to me like the product of a man's sick, wonderful personality, the eccentric alive and validated and the fore of a mass culture just some water away.
