Black and White Wednesday: "To Slay the Savior" by Moench and Nebres

Here's a rare kung-fu team-up for all'a you Groove-ophiles! When preparing Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #29 (August 1976) for print, b&w editor John Warner found himself short one lead-off story, so he took the opportunity to answer many a Marvel martial arts fan's prayer and use the opportunity to team the mag's leading characters, Shang Chi and Iron Fist up in one far-out feature. Calling upon the experienced and speedy team of Doug Moench and Rudy Nebres (both had handled many a Shang Chi or Iron Fist feature in the past), he found himself with a not-too-shabby lead feature called "To Slay the Savior". Dig it!

  1. Hell yeah Groove! I've still got this mag - it's old and tattered but I still love this one! I believe that this was the second team up between Fist and Chi (I stand corrected on this).
