Neal Adams cover featuring David Carradine of TV’s Kung Fu

Kung Fu mania hit the U.S. hard in the early ’70s. Interest in martial arts grew astronomically, thanks to Bruce Lee and those inspired by him. Marvel Comics jumped on the band wagon and introduced several characters that were obviously inspired by the genre.

The most prominent of these was Shang-Chi, Master Of Kung Fu. Writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin used the characters from Sax Rohmer‘s Fu Manchu stories as the supporting cast and created a new protagonist based partly on Kwai Chang Caine of the Kung Fu television series, Shang-Chi. Master Of Kung Fu was successful enough to warrant the release of this companion magazine, which went beyond comics and coverage of martial arts in film, interviews with martial artists and even simple instructional material.
