Giant-Size Master of Kung Fu #1 - non-attributed Don Newton art

Giant-Size Master of Kung Fu v1 #1, 1974 - The main story features pencils by Paul Gulacy, the series artist at the time. Dan Adkins did the inks, with some uncredited assistance by friend and colleague Don Newton. A fan site states he did the backgrounds on pages 16 and 17 and the face on page 22, panel 2. If so, Newton's contribution is pretty scant and in general not easily discernible as his work. One pleasant surprise in the same issue is an early admirable piece by P. Craig Russell. This is number 1 of 1 Master of Kung Fu issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Master of Kung Fu issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.

  1. The face in panel 2 is well rendered, but the neck is messed up.
