MoKF Mondays: "Death Masque!" by Moench, Gulacy, and Adkins
HiiiiiiiiiYA, Groove-ophiles! Y'know, Marvel's line of Giant-Size comics (68 pages for fifty cents) generated tons of excitement in 74/75! One of the best of the best was Giant-Size Master of Kung Fu #1 (June 1974). Regular writer Doug Moench teamed with semi-regular artists Paul Gulacy and Dan Adkins (truly a team that was anything but REGULAR, baby) for an epic 25 page Shang-Chi vs. Fu Manchu tale! Both Moench and Gulacy applied a truly cinematic style, and man, were they ever clicking on "Death Masque!"

As for the rest of ya, the purpose of this blog is to (re)introduce you to the great comics of the 1970s. If you like what you see, do what I do--go to a comics shop, bookstore, e-Bay or whatever and BUY YOUR OWN!
