Dick Giordano - Original Cover Art for Richard Dragon Kung-Fu Fighter #9 (DC, 1976). Dick Giordano, who set the style for inking at DC in the 1970s and beyond, both penciled and inked this high-kicking cover. His supreme mastery of creating form and volume with linework by the use of "thick and thin" lines on the edges of forms, is at its most refined on this cover. His experience, gleaned by working with Neal Adams, no doubt helped Dick Giordano in the creation of this high action cover. This cover sports a very well color-matched title logo photocopy, as well as the original stat for the caption blurb. Art paper is 11.25" x 17" with an image area of 9.75" x 15". A very faint glue residue discoloration is found over the figures and foreground areas, possibly due to a resized stat that was applied to the cover, but the piece is still very attractive with the actual original art now revealed. A great wall piece.
