Web comics Kapow Express is back from the break! what?

Web comics "Kapow Express" is back from the break! what?

I know I know, it's been a while since I update the last Kapow panels. I am hoping to keep going at the same pace it was once a week. Previously, Mei was crushed by the powerful Manchu Captain Big Bow in the battle at the noodle house. Then quickly Bing Bing threw smoke bomb distracting the bad guys. Cheng and Bing Bing is now running away and taking injured Mei out of the harm's way. They ran thru some forrest outside Hang Zhou and now in the next little town (village). The town is strangely quiet. What will happen next? I don't know....yet.

It's getting DARK!
Here is the continuation chapter 2 page 5
webcomics, comix, kapow express, manga, online, cartoon, graphic novel, kungfu

Go read Previously posted: Cheng and Bing headed toward mysterious town
Or READ the whole thing goto Kapow Express online: Online Manga

As usual, feel free to give me idea on the story line, gags...something cool that should happen. It's fun to implement the audiences' thought. I actually have linage plot layout, but you guys could help me add flavor, gags, events to this comedy ACTION PACK!!! This is probably the only Manga you could help the creator with your input. :)

Wow bro... nice to see Kapow Express again! The second panel is really cool... I wonder what's wrong with this guy. Maybe they got into a town of super ugly tribe who got a monsterous face but good heart?! Poor Mei, I think she'll awake pretty soon after that throw and get shocked just like Cheng and Bing Bing! Nice artwork as always mate, that's something I really admire watching :)

Is that the zombie you were talking about?
XIA said…
Luca> Thanks bro, nope...not the ugly tribe. She's a really old gradma...approx 130 years. ha ha

pokepetter> Nope, but they are coming. She's just an extremely old grandma. ;)
XIA said…
Oh! and she's blind and almost deaf...I mean after 130 years of usage, you know.
Luca said…
Xia> Oh I see... well I don't wonder how she's deaf! 130... (by the way, am I right or the picture wasn't in full when you first posted it?) Yesterday I haven't seen the old lady's face... Good job ;)

Very cool!Do Chinese people carry a whole lamp or do they carry a candle or something?I see why she was mistaken for a zombee-her head is skull-formed and she is blind.Great design Xia,she really looks old.
Luca has a point!The first time I saw this page i could only see the first and fourth panel.I guess it wasn't ready yet!Anyway I can see it clearly now!

Luca> Thanks brother!

Dahaca> Where the hell have you BEEN? It seems that you only show up when KAPOW is updated! Chinese people carry everything from different kind of lamps, candle, but mostly lantern back then. Good to see you back.

Chris> Did you just say Old hack? There are kids around could you!? Anyway, I am sure you and many will like what is coming up. ha ha ha ha ha ha....

Edward> Hey Boss! How are you? Yeah, I've been snooping around your blog and site. You are now SUPER-ED! Great to see you do painterly stuff with Ed style!

Blackjoker> Thanks brother! Cheers!
