Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #33 - Marshall Rogers art


Deadly Hands of Kung Fu v1 #33, 1977 - The Daughters of the Dragon story takes a turn toward the extreme as the duo are captured and are forcibly addicted to heroin. There is brief nudity and violence, but Marshall Rogers takes care not to let the artwork seem gratuitous. As with the previous issue, the artist conveys a sophistication and craft heads above the rest of the book. His layouts are as varied as they are inventive, culminating in a grisly full page splash. The scene depicts a determined Colleen Wing delivering the fatal blow to her opponent (page 19). Rogers' conclusion is bloodier than usual, but nonetheless artfully designed. Other artists in this issue include Rudy Nebres, Joe Staton and Sonny Trinidad. This is number 3 of 3 Deadly Hands of Kung Fu issues with Rogers art and/or covers.
