Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #7 - Wally Wood art


Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter v1 #7, 1976 - An oversized brute becomes the next deadly challenge for Richard Dragon and Lady Shiva. The gripping opening splash depicts both characters caught in his sizable grasp. Wally Wood again lends credibility to the series with his precisely applied inks. The story is rife with kung fu action scenes, including a judo sequence that's nearly instructional in tone (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Dick Giordano (cover). This is number 4 of 5 Richard Dragon issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
