Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #3 - Jack Kirby art


Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter v1 #3, 1975 - His one and only effort on this title, Jack Kirby's pencils appear a tad rushed. His adherence to a nine-panel grid on most pages seems repetitious. Although chock full of action scenes, the pacing is chaotic and overwhelming at times. Not quite suited for the kung fu genre, Kirby delivers a barely passable effort. Other artists in this issue include Dick Giordano (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Richard Dragon issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
