I stumbled upon Shi Long Pang after I saw that Mouse Guard creator, David Petersen recommended it on his blog. I spent the next few hours getting caught up on Shi Long Pang and I can tell you that this is a comic worth checking out. Let me first say that, Shi Long Pang is heavy on dialogue and narrative, which is so difficult to find in modern webcomics. This comic tells the story of wandering Shaolin monk and takes place in 17th century China. Ben Costa has attempted to portray the time period as accurately as possible. Everything that is done in Shi Long Pang is grounded in historical accuracy and reality. Even though that may not seem like the most enticing pitch for a comic, the dedication that Costa has put into character development and world building is outstanding.Check this comic out, it’s free and a testament to the craft of webcomics.
