Black and White Wednesday: "The Casket of Hsien Hang!" by Skrenes and Gulacy

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today's classic, "The Casket of Hsien Hang!" from Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #5 (August 1974) would have been just as at home in Savage Tales or Savage Sword of Conan as it was in DHOKF. It's a tale of high-adventure and horror written by the highly talented Mary Skrenes (co-creator/co-writer of Omega the Unknown, among other Groovy Age works) with fabamundo art by Paul Gulacy (inked by Duffy Vohland, graduate of FOOM). This ain't your run-of-the-mill martial arts bash-'em-up, baby. Check it out!

    You choice for wednesday's B & W was most AWESOME! Could we see some White Tiger & the pieces by Dave Cockrum on Morbius & Pat Breoderick's Mant-Thing. They were written text with just a few pin ups.

    How about Superman vs Spider-Man as well. If you haven't already covered it here.
