…Like a Tiger in the Night!
Writer: Bill Mantlo
Artists: Sal Buscema, Mike Esposito
Letters: John Costanza
Colors: Phil Rache
Originally published: August 1977
Overly political, overly contrived. Boo. My impression is that this would have been better in the 70s, but that it hasn’t aged well. Not that racism doesn’t still exist, it’s just that the approach here is a little too hackneyed. I’m also not into the kung-fu thing, as I have mentioned before.
Unfortunately, this is continued next issue.
