Cover by Gray Morrow.
Written by Miguel Ferrer & Bill Mumy with art by Gray Morrow.
Complex story reads more like a film script than a typical comic book. Artist Gray Morrow apparently based several characters in this story on known celebrities, including Jose Ferrer, James Stewart, Peter Strauss, Jackie Gleason, Bruce Lee and Dean Martin.
|Paul Gulacy's marvelous Sean Connery & Marlon Brando!|
|Gulacy did some of the best take-offs of Bruce Lee.|
I always enjoyed it when Paul Gulacy would also base characters in the Master of Kung Fu on celebrities, including Marlon Brando, Sean Connery and Bruce Lee.

|Gray Morrow does Bruce Lee!|
