· THE SCOOP: Fists and feet fly in this martial arts masterpiece!
· THE STORY: Does Spidey want to help Shang-Chi fight his father -- or does he just want the Master of Kung Fu to teach him some sweet moves?
· THE CREATORS: Written by Wizard's "Best Writer of 2000," Brian Michael Bendis - with art by Rick Mays (Kabuki) and a painted cover by David Mack (DAREDEVIL)!
· THE BUZZ: "ULTIMATE TEAM-UP deserves credit for introducing unfamiliar faces to the comics mainstream, and for giving big name talent a chance to have fun with Marvel characters without a major commitment. Happily, it also deserves credit for delivering entertaining stories on a regular basis." - Randy Lander,
· THE FORMAT: 40 pages, with ads. Printed on glossy stock paper with a cardstock cover.

· David Mack - March 26, 2002: "I think you are going to love the art on these two issues of Marvel Team-Up. Rick has really done something special for this. His work on it is amazing. It is really something a little different from his work on Scarab. You can see him flexing different muscles. Really impressed with it. His Master of Kung Fu fight scenes are great. And Anh loves his Spiderman! Andy Lee just finished his contribution to both of these issues as well. Andy illustrates a Chinese Fairy tale that bookends and weaves in and out of the Rick Mays story. I worked on it a bit with him last week, art directing and helping with layouts. He did a great job. Really looking forward to this finished book. It is actually a cool little jam book between friends. Me, Bendis, Mays, and Andy Lee. Very funky little mix."
· According to page 12 of Kabuki: Reflections #4, David Mack modelled Shang Chi after Ean Kramer, who is a Kung Fu instructor; also, a Micron pen was used for the face while the rest of the art was completed with a Croquill pen and ink
· Photos of Mr. Kramer are available in the December 28 & 29, 2004 news updates
