Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #2 - Jim Starlin art

Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter v1 #2, 1975 - This adaptation of the Jim Dennis character marks one of DC's forays into the kung fu genre. Cover artist Al Weiss appears to have pencilled many of the pages, but Jim Starlin's hand is clearly visible on pages 6,7,14-18. Their respective styles are glaringly dissimilar. Despite inker Al Milgrom's attempt to bring consistency, the artwork overall struggles to appear uniform. Starlin's contribution is quite frankly mediocre. This is number 1 of 1 Richard Dragon issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter issues.
