Our Pal Sal: "Catch a Falling Hero" by Claremont, S. Buscema, and Leialoha

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! We're back with the third chapter of Chris Claremont, Sal Buscema, and Steve Leialoha's Spider-Man/Black Widow/S.H.I.E.L.D. super-saga! This time, Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu joins in on the fun, with baddies like Madame Hydra/Viper, Silver Samurai, and Boomerang making things extra hard for our hallowed heroes! From Marvel Team-Up #84 (May 1979), here's "Catch a Falling Hero"!


  1. Still lovin' it. One thing I like about this issue in particular is that once Shang Chi appears, the text boxes shift to his first-person narration like in MoKF.

  2. Man, I love this site! You have brought back long forgotten memories. Thank-you SO MUCH for helping me relive my childhood for a little while each day.

  3. You are so welcome! That's what the Diversions is all about! Thank you for taking the time to post!
