Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a twelve-volume comic series published by Comics One (Vol. 1-4) and HK Comics Limited (Vol. 1-4 Revised & Expanded Edition, Vol. 5-12), written by Andy Seto. The comic is based on a 5 book series known as the Crane-Iron Pentalogy.
The original title comes from two of the characters' names: Lo and Jen. Lo's name is Luo Tsiao Hu. Tsiao Hu means "little tiger". Jen's name is Yu Jiao Long. Jiao Long means "delicate dragon". Crouching tiger and hidden dragon combined is a Chinese proverb that means "talented or dangerous people hidden from view," which fits both Lo and Jen.
