MOKF Monday: "The Phoenix Gambit Part I: Temples of Time" by Moench, Zeck, and Tartag

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Would you have ever thought that Shang Chi and his gang would ever get mixed up in a game of cosmic chess between...? Nah, that would be giving it away. Read "The Phoenix Gambit Part I: Temples of Time" by Doug Moench, Mike Zeck (his MOKF debut!), and John Tartaglione from Master of Kung Fu #59 (September 1977) and see just who's behind our heroes' latest woes!


  1. As I may have mentioned before, MoKF is a Title I never read or bought, but I've seen the error of my ways. Thanks for showing it here, Groove!!
    I see now why it was so well-regarded. Great comic!
    I'm very curious to see how that chess-game turns out...

  2. MOKF was blessed with an abundance of great art: Starlin, Gulacy, Zeck, united with the steady guidance of Doug Moench's scripting. Although the Gulacy run is my favorite of the series, Zeck's is a close second.
