If you like the old martial arts films, this is your type of manhua. A lot action, great art and characters. Awesome manhua!
I have not read the manhua but I do recall seeing a drama version of this and I believe it was pretty good interms of story and plot. So this might be slightly off point. Its been a while since I saw the drama so I don't recall too much of the details at this point. The characters and fights were rather good and fun to watch. So the manhua must be a good read, I will also recommend it - based on the drama.
Storm Riders is a big franchise by now. There's three movies, two TV series and a video game adaption.
I saw the first movie of 1998 first and it really caught me. It wasn't utterly good compared to other fantasy movies but I loved the two main characters. The manhua was also the first Chinese comic I ever read and it surprised me so much with its outstanding artwork. Truly recommend for everyone to try out.
I watched the first movie a couple of weeks back. I like plot and the characters. Guess, I need to start the manhua soon.
This is interesting, i ll start it as soon as i update myself with the other mangas that i generally read
any one interested in online reading can try this out
