riddler13: (Richard Dragon)
[personal profile] riddler13 posting in [community profile] scans_daily
I became a big fan of Richard Dragon after O'Neill used him as a sensei during his Question run in the mid-80's. It reached a point where it became my go-to handle whenever I need to register to something without using my true name, replacing the Riddler (huh, goes to show how old this account is).

So I decided to tackle his old comics, fully aware that they were pure kung-fu exploitation, and he wouldn't have the calm demeanor he shows in the Question run. To my surprise, they are quite passable, but issue #3 is a gem in itself, since it is illustrated by none other than Jack Kirby himself.



The plot is actually quite straightforward, so I'll simply paste 6 pages out of 18. A villain named "Swiss" captures a girl named Carolyn Woosan (40 years later, the surname's a dead giveaway as to whom she was related to) to torture her for information regarding a project her late uncle was working on. RD comes to her rescue and, in doing so, uses the Dragon's Claw for the first time.



("WOTAMI"?)




He shouldn't have wasted his time, because the Swiss obviously invites him to his secret hideout in a pub.





BOOM goes everything, but obviously Richard, the Swiss and Carolyn manage to escape from the scene.



And what a coincidence: 100 years of Kirby, 100th use of the Kirby tag!
