金庸小说将被改编成漫画 Famous martial arts novels coming as comic series
Louis Cha, better known by penname Jin Yong(金庸), is going to see all his 15 martial arts novels(武侠小说) adapted into an online comic(漫画) series(系列). Four of the classics(经典) will be the first batch(批) of the adaptation(改编) project and have the comic strips(连环漫画) run on the web by the end of the year. Tech giant Tencent and Hong Kong-based broadcaster Phoenix TV are serving as producers. The four novels are Tianlong Babu (Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils)《天龙八部》, Lu Ding Ji (Duke of Mount Deer)《鹿鼎记》, Xiao Ao Jianghu (The Smiling, Proud Wanderer)《笑傲江湖》 and Xia Ke Xing (Ode to Gallantry)《侠客行》.
