Black and White Wednesday: "The Crack of the Whip" by Mantlo, Perez, and the Tribe

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! After all the cosmic goings-on in the last Sons of the Tiger outing, writer Bill Mantlo and artist George Perez gave us a more gritty, down to earth episode in Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #12 (April 1975). "The Crack of the Whip" focuses on Son of the Tiger Abe Brown and introduces Nathan Alexander Byrd, aka Blackbyrd! It's kung-fu Blaxploitation in the Mighty Marvel Manner, baby! Can you dig it?
