MASTER OF KUNG FU GIANT-SIZE (1974) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Master of Kung Fu Giant-Size (1974) #1
Put on your black belt and bow to the Master before spin-kicking your way into this tome of fantastic stories of kung fu action and adventure. In the first multi-part story, Shang Chi, the Master of Kung Fu, faces off against Fu Manchu's most powerful Si-Fan assassins: the Silent Council. The lethal warriors, devoted to Shang Chi's diabolical father, strike with grace and power in a deadly dance called "Death Masque" (by writer Doug Moench and artists Paul Gulacy and Dan Adkins).

Then, Shang Chi encounters three burglars attempting to steal a sacred Buddha statue for Fu Manchu in "Frozen Past, Shattered Memories" (written by Moench with art by Craig Russell). Artist Frank McLaughlin provides a brief introduction to Shaolin Temple Boxing starring Iron Fist. Then, stand in awe at "The Coming of the Yellow Claw," a gem from 1956 written by Stan Lee and drawn by Joe Maneely, featuring the first appearance of Jimmy Woo (see Agents of Atlas). Finally, Shang Chi encounters prejudice and hostility in Miami's slums in a story titled "Reflections in a Rippled Pool" (written by Moench with art by Ron Wilson and Mike Esposito).
