Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #5 - Wally Wood art


Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter v1 #5, 1976 - Seeking revenge for her sister's death, martial arts fighter Lady Shiva makes her first appearance. Ric Estrada does a decent job with the pencils and layouts, but it's Wally Wood's inking that raises the bar. There is considerably more depth and texture in the drawings. His rendering of female characters (see interior page below) is overtly sensual, reinforcing his reputation as a capable "good girl" artist. Other artists in this issue include Dick Giordano (cover). This is number 2 of 5 Richard Dragon issues with Wood art and/or covers.
